Right so I personally can't see anything but a city win.
3-1
Fielding
Fredericks / little?
Williams
Flint
Ayling
Bryan
Smith
Burns
Pack
Agard
Kodjia
This would be the team I would like to start
And btw do we play 3-5-2 or 5-3-2 because I don't know if Bryan and little and wingbacks or not

2-2, unless Bristol City sign a couple of players before the game.

Bryan and Fredericks were most certainly played as out and out wing backs up until the sending off on Saturday, but once we went down to 10 they were seemingly instructed to halt their runs, and stick to their defensive duties.

I like to think of it as, when we attack, 3-5-2, when we defend, 5-3-2, but, as is often the case, when wing backs get caught high up the field, it fast becomes just a back 3 again, but - that's the risk you take.

I'd start Little (if fit) over Fredericks, as he looked a little fatigued as the game went on Saturday. Also, I'd slot one of either Reid, Wagstaff or Robinson into Freeman's role. Don't know where Burns would fit into it all personally.

Agard I doubt will be fit, he made very little impact Saturday when he came on, and he'll be in action for the U21's tomorrow night, in an attempt to get up to speed.

Wilbs and Kodjia will start upfront again.

As for the game, I think we've got a good chance, but we'll miss Freeman massively. He makes us tick in the middle.

I'll go for a draw - but looking forward to this one massively. First game under the lights in the new South Stand, and I have the whole of Wednesday and Thursday off, so it should be fun.

How comfortable could Fredericks be on the Left do people reckon? Maybe 442 if we don't have Freeman?

GK: Hamer (Frankie fit yet?)
RB: Ayling
CB: Flint
CB: Williams
LB: Fredericks
RM: Wagstaff/Burns
CM: Pack
CM: Smith
LM: Bryan
ST: Kodjia
ST: Wilbraham

Just thinking without Freeman maybe experiment with another formation

Bryan not up front? Are you mad?

We've had a f**king awful summer, three losses on the bounce and one of our most important players is out for three games. Wish I could share your optimism, Jack!

We always seem to self destruct against Leeds in some way.. be it getting two Men sent off, giving away silly goals or bringing on Nicky f***ing Hunt.

Id take a draw to get ourselves off the mark but got a feeling we,ll lose another high scoring game. :(

Honestly can't call this one. We've looked well organised in all games so far so that's a solid platform but need to be more creative and deadly.

I mean, I'd say another draw would be decent but three points from three games doesn't read too well, even if each was a good result in isolation. Three would be tremendous. Really think this could go any which way to be honest.

Can't see anything apart from a Leeds win. Shame how it's gone so wrong for us this summer and it's quite clearly showing on the pitch!

0-2 Leeds

As Magic says above Leeds have looked very organised and are very solid at the back. Difficult to break them down. Struggled to create many chances yesterday though. 1-1 draw.

I agree to be honest. Admittedly, we have had a deadly opening month, with 5 tough games coming thick and fast, but we've got another 41 to get through before we can relax.

Need some key signings, or we're in big trouble.

I think this game will be more open than your last two - we play a far more expansive way than Burnley did when you were on Sky, and you shouldn't really struggle to create chances, as our back 3 have been royally exposed by our midfield in the last two games.

Anyway, at least Flint vs Wood should be an interesting battle.

Optimistic about this after the first half performance against Brentford. Know we never beat Leeds but that's got to change sooner or later, surely?!

I wouldn't change it, go pretty much like for like with Robinson in for Freeman and that's it. Wouldn't want to play Little unless he was absolutely fully fit, and I thought Fredericks did alright personally, played some nice threaded balls infield to the strikers.

Hamer

Ayling Flint Williams
Fredericks Smith Pack Bryan
Robinson
Kodjia Wilbraham

2-1 City (Kodjia, Robinson)

Well Wood's been horribly isolated so far which has seen some of our fans writing him off already which is embarrassing. Not sure what our team will be as we've rotated a bit given the busy schedule.

All "ifs buts and maybes", but I'm sure without the sending off on Saturday we would have gone on to win the game, playing good, open, attacking football.

Yes we have a few "well documented" issues at the moment, but the foundations look pretty solid to me.

I would hope the team remains the same, barring the need to replace Freeman of course, and can see us nicking it by the odd goal. 2-1 City.

By the way in only going for a win on the basis of the first 35 minutes of Saturday

Can see us winning this. Kodjia with a brace. Looked impressive on Saturday. Completely different player to the one I saw up at Sheffield.

Don't like it when people keep bigging up the odds about us:

Phil Hay ‏@PhilHayYEP 43m43 minutes ago
Looking at the odds and seeing Leeds at 3/1 (or close enough) tomorrow. Big time.

Especially our main newspaper reporter...I just get on edge when people fancy us but I suppose it is a decent price all things considered. Wish I could be as confident!

it's a ridiculous odds, so under-rated but i guess that's a good thing

you take into account too that we seem to be a bogey team for Bristol City, 6 wins in 6

We'll get this 'organised' Leeds team moving about tomorrow.

Robinson in for Freeman in an (otherwise) unchanged starting XI.

Hard to predict the score, but think we can score at least 2 goals.

City 2+ - ? Leeds

Is that an acceptable prediction?
