Tomorrow night, Elland Road. Rearranged due to Bournemouth's FA Cup commitments. Obviously we have none of those.

So can we do the double? Probably not. Ought to be goals. Mainly in our net I'd imagine. We were a shade unlucky at the weekend and hopefully we can take some momentum into this. Team likely to be similar to last time but would prefer to see Mowatt on the left with Cook in the middle. Problem with that is if we're sticking with 2 up front, you either drop Austin or Murphy - the former offers us a bit of steel/power and the latter played well and scored on Saturday. For that reason I wouldn't be surprised to see us unchanged. Unless Berardi is fit to play RB.

1-3.

Is it right we're the only team you've beaten away all season?

Feel very confident about this, with the form and seasons of each side it should only go one way. All of that undermines my confidence and it'll likely be very cagey. Looking at that Leeds lineup they've set out to frustrate us, patience may be the key here but I sense that the longer go without a goal the more frustrated we'll be (Exactly what happened in August).

I'll go 1-2, but I now feel very unconfident

Having said all the above... Lids are absolutely battering us so far. We can't even get a touch :gmc:

Pitman's equaliser wrongly ruled out for offside, and Wilson with the miss of the season towards the end of the half.

Despite that we've deserved nothing, the only upside is we surely can't be that bad second half?

We don't keep many clean sheets so this is still way up in the air. Good start though.

Missing a penalty against 10 men.

Ever get the feeling it's just not going to go in that bloody net?

Well we got a break. Thank God for that. About time. The players deserve that for the last couple of games when we've deserved to win probably. Conceded 3 pens in 3 games too now but Saturday's wasn't a foul and this was outside the box by all accounts. Bellusci had to do it though you'd have to say.

Get in!

Typical Leeds to do the fucking double over the league leaders but still only register their first win in two months :dk:

Piss it. Shambolic first half cost us; credit to Leeds who were excellent but that was possibly the worst we have played all season- glad we have essentially a 'free' game on Sunday to get back on track with a changed team.

At least we showed a glimpse of quality second half, should have equalised before the penalty (It was outside the box), with Wilson missing a complete sitter, but Pitman's goal being ruled out for offside when he was clearly onside will no doubt be discussed in the coming days.

Every team loses games, 2 in 3 is a slight concern but nobody has run away at the top and I suspect our time there is coming to an end. A bloody tough run now until March time- if we can stay in touch until then then I think we can make the play-offs.

Lewis Cook was meant to be outstanding tonight. Kid's gonna be an outrageous talent. Impressing like Delph only younger than when he broke through and in a higher division. Nice to see lots of our young talent supplementing the Italian imports, and impressing.

What a win! Didn't manage to see the game but by most accounts we had a strong first half and withstood a bit of pressure late on, plus we got had a bit of luck with the penalty miss. Luke Murphy has been been important since returning to the side.

Table looks a lot healthier for now, just need to step it up against the lesser teams as well.

Matt Murray on SSN claiming that even though the contact was outside the box, Bournemouth deserved a penalty :fish:

Cynical tackle and yeah probably a red but still...

Nice to see Bournemouth dropping some more points (though would love to see them finish 2nd behind the Bees!). Also great to see a match day thread with some posts behind it, missed out last weekend with TFF going down!

Was a very weird game, if there was one team against which we would conspire to miss so many gilt edged chances, have a legal goal ruled out, hit the woodwork and miss a penalty - it would be Leeds.

Tonight's result makes it all the stranger.

Credit Leeds for the double! Hope they're the only ones come the end of the season... Sounds like their goal was a cracker too.
