Hi Folks

Leeds visit the Hawthorns for the first time in twelve years as two of the most fancied Championship giants go head to head.

Baggies Manager Darren Moore’s will be under relative pressure as his side have only scored twice in their previous four games, a run that has returned just a single point.

They will however be boosted by the news that Dwight Gayle, Gareth Barry and Kieran Gibbs are all expected to be return.

Bielsa has no fresh injury concerns to worry about and will be expected to field the same XI that dominated Wigan last weekend.

Ex Baggie Tyler Roberts will have to make do with a place on the bench.

Leeds will be encouraged by West Brom's leaky defence. They have conceded as many times at Bolton (24).

Their fans aren't confident at all, hope Gayle doesn't play, remember what he did to us for Newcastle.

About 3 weeks ago I would of been happy with a point from this game but with their current form I'm confident of all 3 now

Play the game like we did against Wigan and I can’t see us losing. Derby recently took the game to West Brom and romped home 1-4, the Baggies were one of the pre season favourites for promotion but I’m yet to be convinced by them. A very winnable fixture, the last time I was at the Hawthorns was in 2002 when we ran out 3-1 winners with goals from Kewell, Bowyer and Viduka , I see no reason why we can’t repeat that score line on Saturday.

That's the scoreline I've gone for on our prediction forum thread :tup:

As much as their run of form gives us confidence they will also be out to turn things around. As mentioned above Gayle always seems to cause us problems - so with all that said I'd take a point, be a decent result against what is still a strong side.

Difficult one to predict - on the face of it, we are playing well, they are aren't but I think the baggies do depend a lot on Dwight Gayle ( and he has missed their last couple of matches ) and he can be a really pain for the best of defences. Along with Barnes, those two have pace to burn and that can trouble the likes of Dallas and Cooper especially. That said, we have plenty of ways to hurt them too with likes of Pablo, Roofe and Klich playing so well at present.

I am going to be cautious and go for a 2 v 2 draw which wouldnt be a bad result going into yet another damn international break which are really getting on my nerves !! Every time you think the season has got going, it stops again for these meaningless matches that very few people care about.
LEEDS AND FOREVER PROUD TO BE !!

Hoping for a win naturally but dont buy into who is in form or not as much of a factor as thats not the way the way the Championship works, particularly this season. As bad as these international breaks are, they are bearable after a win

Lots of confidence on here (no bad thing) and, conversely, Baggies fans fearing the worst but look at the players they can field. Lots with Prem experience, including Gayle who always does well against us, I'd be happy with a point.

I think this could be another game where we are the better side but lose by a goal. I love to be wrong (sometimes). Ayling is a massive loss for us but we coped well last time out - lets hope for more of the same.

I'd back a decent pacy winger v Dallas every time, SD is not even a right-sided player let alone a defender which could be our undoing.

Wigan had nothing in that position, the majority of championship clubs have that type of player in their locker, prepare yourselves for a hair-raising ride down that right flank until January

They'd be a bit past it ...
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

Dallas isn't a left sided player, he's right footed
