View From The Town End - Leeds

So after a run of three games without a win it's time to head into Saturday's M4 derby on a high and to do that we'll have to beat Leeds at Elland Road. To get the opposition view on tonight's game we spoke to Thomas Hill from Through it All Together.

Paul Thomas

How would you sum up Leeds season so far?

We've had some Up's and downs so far pretty much like or famous song. Shocking start under Hockaday with the fans fuming at his appointment but then Neil Redfearn came in picked up points, played lovely football and galvanised the fan base. We've now appointed Darko Milanic who has only had one game so the fans are just waiting to see what he can do for now. It's a big week with us playing Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday so two quick-fire games which we can hopefully pick up a few points.

Dave Hockaday didn't stick around long... what went wrong in his brief tenure and what do you make of the new boss Darko Milanic?

He was never good enough in the fans eyes from the start. Always going to be hard. He'd never had any success as a boss yet talked like a man in the know. I felt slightly sorry for him to be honest but we needed to move on quickly. I'd like to have seen Redearn given the job but that could happen later on down the line. Milanic won plenty of trophies in Slovenia but not the best record in Austria so we will wait and see.

Any fond memories of games against Reading?

Not really. We've not beaten you since 2005 I don't think so going to have to be that game.


Any not so fond ones?

Every other game since 2005 haha!!

Who should Reading fans be wary of on Wednesday?

Depending on our team, Lewis Cook, Souleymane Doukara, Marko Antenucci and of course the ever-prolific Billy Sharp. We have played some lovely football in recent weeks so we could give you a good game on Wednesday.

Anyone Leeds fans aren't looking forward to facing?

There's not many that are naming any but from my point of view I rate Olivier Norwood, Jamie Mackie, and Glenn Murray plus the injured Garath McCleary.

Score prediction?

I'm going to be optimistic and see we sneak it 2-1.

Finally any advice for fans heading to Elland Road?

Set off nice and early with it being a long journey and a midweek one as always and of course enjoy the game and may the best team win.
