After the three game unbeaten run ended last Saturday, Leeds will hope to start another with a better performance against a much improved Ipswich Town.
Since Mick McCarthy arrived, the previously under performing Suffolk side have three straight wins as they travel to Elland Road with renewed confidence. They have a costly assembled squad with QPR loanee DJ Campbell getting the goals and Emmanuel Thomas providing the spark in midfield.
With options around Neil Warnock has a tough choice to make, whether to drop his captain Lee Peltier, who although playing left back is not in the best of form. Whether the manager persists playing him in the role or plays him in the position most natural is to be seen, he's definitely not a left back in my opinion and a few others have commented after his recent performances.
Three games in a week will test the squad and I can't see many changes apart from the one I've
mentioned. Personally I'd like to see Adam Drury given a run in the side as he has not been given much of a chance by the manager. Jerome Thomas is ready after missing last week through injury.
One thing certain an 'up and at them' is really needed from the beginning, as last week it was a slow start that gave Derby the upper hand last Saturday. Another close game before a certain London side arrives but I'm going for a Leeds win.
