RB – Luke Ayling – Another solid performance from Ayling on Friday. He’ll continue at right-back I’m sure, his attacking threat helps us a lot especially at home.
CB – Kyle Bartley – What a performance from Bartley on Friday and you could see how much it meant to him celebrating Wood’s equaliser at the end, we need him permanently. He’s missed just one game all season which just shows how important he’s been to us.
CB – Pontus Jansson – Once again Jansson was unreal when it mattered. Put his body on the line on more than one occasion and he and Bartley were immense together. He really gets what it is to be Leeds and I just hope no matter what happens this season we manage to keep hold of him for next year. The real talking point is that he’s only one booking away from a three game suspension. If he doesn’t get yellow carded against Wolves then he’s bound to miss at least one of the Play-Off games, should we make it. For me, he’s got to take a tactical yellow. We can’t afford to lose him for the Play-Off’s and Ayling is more than capable of covering at centre-back. Jansson and Monk will have discussed this for sure and providing we’re winning on Monday you could well see Jansson receive a soft booking.
LB – Charlie Taylor – A tough decision for Monk. Berardi has been brilliant this season but Taylor is the best Left-Back in the league. I don’t think he’ll be here next year no matter what division we’re in next season. I think Monk will go with Taylor and give Berardi a rest.
Into the midfield…
