Happy Hunting

Surprised to learn that we are undefeated on our last six visits to Elland Road. I'll wager that's about our best away ground record currently? Even more impressive when you consider how expansive Leeds have been on Valley visits over the years (you know which games I am talking about).

I am feeling more confident about this evening's visit than perhaps the match against Wednesday on Saturday where 1-1 was the most likely outcome. Leeds haven't won in seven and news of Redfearn's re-appointment didn't spark an immediate bounce on Saturday as they went down 3-1 at Cardiff. Leeds fans will tell us Redfearn wasn't in charge on Saturday but the players were playing for him to all intents and purposes. 

Leeds are in a mighty mess with their latest new dodgy owners and Massimo Cellino is hiring and firing managers left, right and centre. I believe he is a very hands-on owner in terms of team selection so wonder how long no-nonsense Redfearn will put up with any interference. The Red Bull group are also rumoured to be interested in Leeds although Cellino is resisting advances at the moment.

The Whites will be without Captain Jason Pearce as he is suspended and I expect we will have a look at loanee Francis Coquelin this evening. With Igor back and Charlton playing on the counter, I reckon we can get a result if we score first and I am taking us to do that. 

Come on you rip-roaring-goal-scoring Addicks!
