“I’m disappointed in a sense,” was Garry Monk’s reply when he was quizzed about the result in the last game. The Whites lead for a considerable amount of time but were denied by a late Kodija penalty which shared the spoils on the night.
Leeds United, though, will have a chance to make it a winning start to the New Year when they take on Rotherham this Monday.
Leeds are unbeaten in four games and will want to continue that to strengthen their playoff spots. With closeness in the league this season, dropping points in a single game can change the look of the table.
Leeds have a pretty good defensive record and against a Rotherham side who have managed just 25 goals this season, the Whites will be pretty confident of a good defensive performance. Here’s how the team is likely to look when they take on Rotherham.
Predicted 4-2-3-1 Leeds United Lineup Vs Rotherham
Rob Green is expected to guard the goal this season. The custodian, who is often remembered for his howler against USA, has managed eight shutouts this season and has been a solid performer for the Whites this season.
In front of the custodian, Pontus Jansson and Kyle Bartley are likely to start.
In the full-back areas, Gaetano Berardi and Luke Ayling are likely to play as the full-backs.
