Birmingham are the visitors to Elland Road this Saturday as Leeds aim to bring their unbeaten Championship reign to nine games.

Winless Birmingham will be rueing missed chances against the Blades at Bramall lane midweek, collecting their sixth draw of the season so far.

Marcelo Bielsa is still without Hernandez, Roofe and Brown but Shackleton and Berardi are available for selection if required though its not very often the gaffer changes a winning formula.

Tyler Roberts looks certain to retain his lone strikers role having scored a brace against the LilyWhites midweek.

Can anyone name 10 players who have played for both teams?

No he was on our books in the early 80's but he never played for us. Good shout though

brum will be a tough nut to crack. watched em a few times on sky and appear to be well organised but lacking a real goal scorer. a scrappy 1-0 win.

Fans were worried about Preston & we steam-rollered them

I've seen Brum a couple of times, they don't look all that good. Brum v Swansea was an awful game.

We play like we have done all season & we'll beat them

I'm with you Leic, lost twice both 1-0 .
Created chances but haven't taken them, expecting a tight game.

Birmingham are still without a win but have managed to draw 6 of their 8 games.
They have only scored 5 goals which says a lot about them as a threat going forward.
They have only conceded 7 which suggests they will be tough to break down but I expect a bit of magic from Samu will open them up.
If we can get in front they will have to come at us and it will leave them vulnerable.
The championship is forever producing surprise results but I don't expect this to be one of them.
I'm going for a 2-0 win.
