Leeds United February fixtures- difficulty analysis

The Whites are still pondering over the loss against Norwich, as they kicked off the February with a worst possible start. Adding much to their worries, this month has a series of tough fixtures piled up for them.

Being the table leaders earlier, they have moved a position down as a result of the recent slump.  From notching a seven-match winning streak to losing 5 games in a quick spree, it is a clear sign that Marcelo Bielsa’s side is in a real crisis. Perhaps, February is going to be a rough terrain where they are going to be tested for real.

The defense has seemed to be more exposed in the recent times, and everybody cites this as the real cause for the defeats. The injury list has also been a hurting factor for the manager.

Leeds United vs Middlesbrough

Leeds United will travel to the Riverside Stadium this Saturday. Middlesbrough’s success in front of their home crowd has been amazing this season. They are trailing two places behind the whites as of the moment. Having secured only 5 losses same as Norwich city, they impose a real threat to the Leeds United.

Leeds United vs Swansea

The memories of their previous encounter with Swansea would come before their eyes. In Swansea’s own backyard the Whites were only able to draw the game. And Swansea has picked up their pace lately, pulling out three victories of the last 4 games. They have the ability to upset this Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Leeds United vs Queens Park

Queens Park stunned the whites in their FA cup Meeting last month. With that victory, they had the chance of the scores for their earlier defeat against Leeds. The irony is, in fact, it is QPR’s only victory in recent times. By citing this reason, it is still anyone’s game.

Leeds United vs Bolton

The only game that Leeds can take it for granted is the one against  Bolton Wanderers are currently at the bottom second of the table. The whites have had their numbers in all the previous encounters. Yes, the fans and the team can have a huge sigh of relief.

Marco Biesla should take these events as a real wake-up call and enhance the confidence of the players. And the only chance to overcome this tough month is to tussle hard in every single game. .And the county championship being at stake, they have no other chances than pushing the boundaries.
