      There is a rare air of stability and positivity around Leeds at the moment and under the likable Uwe Rosler they have started the season brightly. After 4 consecutive draws to start the season and with their 5th match seemingly heading for another stalemate, Chris Wood popped up to fire in an 88th minute winner at pre-season title favourites Derby and send Leeds into the international break on a real high note.

      Contrast that to Brentford, who have looked a shadow of the side that made the play-offs under Mark Warburton last term. The decision to let him go seemed an odd one at the time and so it has proved so far with new boss Marinus Dijkhuizen struggling for results.

      Their only win so far came at Bristol City but the game swung when Luke Freeman saw red for the hosts in the 1st half with Brentford trailing 2-1. They took advantage of their man advantage well but have lost both matches since then and have also lost star striker Andre Gray, who netted 17 times last season but has joined Burnley.

      Therefore these are slightly worrying times for the Londoners and the manner of their 3-1 home defeat to Reading last time out will have come as a real concern. With Leeds unbeaten and with confidence high, they look really good for the win in this one at 11/8.

      As well as having their main goal threat taken away, the visitors look really shaky at the back and have conceded 12 goals in their 5 matches so far this campaign. Leeds aren’t good enough to really take advantage and score a hatful but a 2-0 win shouldn’t be beyond them and you can back them to do that at tempting odds of 11/1.
