Our football match prediction:
There will be fireworks when Leeds United and Brighton face each other at Elland Road in what is expected to be the most interesting game of Saturday’s program. The Whites played out a goalless draw with QPR at the weekend, but despite dropping two points in Saturday’s football match against the Hoops, Garry Monk’s men are on the right track to book their place in the Championship play-offs. Leeds United are eager to return to the English top flight, but they will have to be on top of their game in the remainder of the season if they are to meet the goal. Their next rivals Brighton rolled over Derby County in their last league fixture, but beating Leeds United on the road is easier said than done. The Whites are on a six-game unbeaten run in the league and, no doubt, the Seagulls, who are eyeing automatic promotion to the Premier League, would be happy with one point from Saturday’s showdown. A man to watch in the away team will be Anthony Knockaert, who scored his 13th goal of the season against Steve McClaren’s charges, and we predict that he will prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
