Leeds should take advantage of many Villa injuries

Heading into the game tomorrow night, many Leeds fans would have taken a draw against an in-form Aston Villa. However, after seeing who they’ll be missing, a win is a must.

Jedinak is a top player, one who I wouldn’t mind sitting in our midfield as it goes. Although he hasn’t been a key player for Villa this season, he did start at centre-back last game.

John Terry has missed their last few games and it goes without saying any team at this level would miss a player of his talent and experience. I’m sure Leeds fans attending the game would have had a laugh with him, too.

Scott Hogan and Jonathan Kodjia have both been missing recently, with most of Villa’s goals coming from winger Albert Adomah, with 10 in the league so far. He’s been playing on the left this season so Luke Ayling will have a tough task on his hands. That’s not to say Berardi will have an easy night, as he’s got a Scottish winger by the name of Robert Snodgrass to deal with.

19-year-old Keinan Davis will start upfront for Villa, he’s scored 2 goals in 17 appearances this season. Although the injuries haven’t damaged them too much so far, Leeds really need to take advantage of the situation. To be fair, Villa haven’t faced many good teams in the past month, with Ipswich the pick of the bunch.

If Leeds do manage to get the win tomorrow night, everything will be rosy again in LS11.



  1. The next four games up to Christmas are all winnable and the three Christmas games are not exactly demanding on paper either. A really good run now will set us up for the New Year.
