It‘s absolutely clear that Leeds have allowed themselves to become distracted by their FA Cup heroics. While their victory at Old Trafford and draw at White Hart Lane were both magnificent, their league form has suffered, with just one point gained from matches against Wycombe, Exeter and Swindon. The 3-0 defeat at the County Ground had manager Simon Grayson fuming, although this is still a quality team that are likely to be promoted at the end of the season. The tonking by Town could be just the wake-up call that United need and they should be taken to win this game.
After all, Jermaine Beckford remains one of the hottest properties outside of the top two divisions and Robert Snodgrass also seems destined to play at a higher level. Colchester have had a great season considering that Paul Lambert left them for Norwich in the early stages of the campaign, with Adie Bothroyd steering the side to within eight points of Saturday‘s opponents. However, it‘s their home form which has elevated the U‘s to such a lofty position and recent 5-0 and 7-0 thrashings by Norwich and Preston respectively illustrate that the defence is vulnerable. Best odds for the Leeds win is 1.66 at Bet Fred.
