Leeds suffered one of their hardest defeats when Barnsley trashed them 5-2 in reverse fixture, but according to recent results and league positions of local rivals, similar result is not very likely tonight.
Leeds are unbeaten in six league games and are serious promotion contender. They suffered only one defeat in last 19 games, they made Elland Road look like fortress again and most important, they are scoring for fun. They could do with better defense though, but struggling Barnsley will hardly outscore them tonight.
Norwich were denied huge three points at Leeds last weekend, but draw against promotion rivals was decent result. They should have much easier job tonight when they host Doncaster, so their fans will expect nothing but comfortable win. Doncaster are in free fall lately and are coming to this match after two hard defeats against Ipswich and Swansea. Absence of key player Billy Sharp is one of the reason of their poor run, and with obvious problems to score goals (failed to score in last four games), they are now flirting with relegation.
Promotion candidates Leeds and Norwich should both comfortably win their respective games tonight, and although Leeds vs Barnsley is Yorkshire derby, I’m still confident enough that they are worth a punt. Leeds/Norwich double pays around 2.20 at most of the bookies.
