If this was a league match, Leeds performances under Bielsa, especially the demolition (of) Derby, would have me very worried indeed, but I suspect this game will be all about priorities and ours is clearly Championship survival so I'm expecting fringe players e.g. ALF and Oztumer to start.
After 2 games Leeds have a +5 GD which is indicative of Bielsa's attacking style so regardless of who they put out I imagine they'll go at us hammer and tongs and play a high press.
I expect us to lose, but hopefully there will be a decent performance and that some of the fringe players will stake a claim for a starting spot.

I'm guessing 2 nil.

I don't agree lusty. I think we might lose but we WILL score at least one. It's still early doors of course but we seem to be far more attack minded than we were last term AND we're converting chances at a much improved rate. I'm gonna predict 2-2 at ninety minutes. Wildschut to score first. Us to win aet/pens.

One reason for that is I think Leeds see themselves as serious promotion contenders and they'll keep their very best players for the League as a result. Whatever team they play I just have a feeling we're going to nick this one.

Ref watch: Haines to take charge of Leeds United v Bolton Wanderers

Andy Haines will oversee Wanderers’ First Round Carabao Cup away tie against Leeds United tomorrow evening.

The official, who has been involved in the professional game since 2007, took charge of 33 games last season, producing 99 yellow and sending off six players.

In his previous game, Haines oversaw Cambridge United versus Notts County in Sky Bet League Two, where the home side won 3-2 with three yellow cards branded.

Matthew Jones and Wayne Grunnill will run the line the game, with Lee Freeman taking the role of fourth official.

If he does it won't surprise me for the reason I already stated. I think we will nick this one whatever squad he plays. I know it's very early doors but this season feels more hopeful to me than any in the last ten years or so. In fact I'm probably being wildly over optimistic but there's a buzz around the place that hasn't been there in a long time. It almost feels like the summer of '92 again.

Or maybe it's just my meds. Smile

Not like this mate. I usually hope for the best while privately preparing for the worst. This year I genuinely don't believe we're going to have a bad season. Maybe it's because I'm finally getting over my own depression (my meds are now very low dose and I don't need them often, about once a week or so) but for some reason I really think this could be a very good year to be a Trotter. One thing I do know is we're NOT going to win the league but I do honestly feel we'll be top half which a month ago I would have said was too much to expect. To be honest part of that is down to the fact we're scoring goals and actually taking chances much better than we have in the last few years. Sure we lost a two goal lead against Bristol but I'm encouraged by the fact we HAD a two goal lead given how badly our attack performed in recent years. There also seems to be a different mind set from PP and the coaches this year, we're not playing 'park the bus and hoof it'. I've just seen the whole game against Bristol (a mate found a stream and downloaded the entire match but won't tell me which software let him do that) and we played some really good football. With the arrival of a solid left back I honestly think we're a genuinely competitive outfit now.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Leeds United v Bolton Wanderers

Phil Parkinson’s men undergo their first cup fixture of the 2018/19 season, when his side take on Leeds United in the first round of the Carabao Cup. Five talking points were picked out by bwfc.co.uk ahead of the encounter.

1.      Last Time Out

When last coming up against Leeds, it was last season when the opponents took the spoils in a 2-1 defeat for the Whites at Elland Road.

Caleb Ekuban opened the scoring for the home side on four minutes, with Pablo Hernandez doubling the deficit just after the half time break.

Adam Le Fondre pulled one back for Wanderers straight after, as he expertly nodded home from a Sammy Ameobi free-kick.  

2.      Extending the unbeaten run

After taking four points from six available from the first two league fixtures, the Whites are looking to extend their unbeaten run to three games against United.

The last time Wanderers achieved this was in the 2017/18 season in March, drawing against Reading and Sheffield Wednesday before an Adam Le Fondre goal took the spoils against Aston Villa.

With two great results against West Brom and Bristol City to build on, the Trotters will be looking to take all that momentum into Tuesday.

3.      Opponent’s current form

Leeds come into this game with great form behind them, taking maximum points from their two opening Sky Bet Championship fixtures.

They opened up the season with an emphatic 3-1 victory against former Premier League side Stoke City.

The West Yorkshire side followed this up with a 4-1 win against Frank Lampard’s Derby County.

4.      New boss

This summer, there have been various new additions made by the club during the summer.

Marcelo Bielsa was appointed as manager of the club in June after the sacking of Paul Heckingbottom.

Following on from a three-year playing career in his native Argentina, this will be Bielsa’s 28th year in management.

During his time at Athletic Bilbao, he finished runner-up in the UEFA Europa League and Copa del Rey in 2011/12. He also won the gold medal with Argentina in the 2004 Summer Olympics.

He was appointed manager of Leeds in June 2018.

In terms of playing staff, full back Barry Douglas was brought in from Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Scottish international was instrumental in gaining promotion to the top tier of English football for Wolves last season, playing 40 times in the league with five goals to his name.

As well as Douglas, striker Patrick Bamford signed from Middlesbrough in July. A former England youth international, Bamford was named Football League Championship Player of the Year in 2014/15 whilst playing for Middlesbrough on loan.

That season, he notched up 17 goals in 38 Sky Bet Championship games.

5.      Pay on the Day

Wanderers supporters will be able to buy tickets from the turnstiles at Elland Road, tomorrow evening, on a cash only basis.

Adult, over 60 and under 23 price bands will increase by £5 on the day. Tickets for under 16’s will remain at £1.

Advanced sales are still available via the phone lines & in person at Bolton Central until 10am on Tuesday 14th August, after which time, no sales or refunds can be processed.

Sorry, I'm a bit disorganised today and rushing rather than checking things properly like I normally do.

I've taken it down now.

Reading might be bottom of the league but they've had two very tough games and will be determined to pick up their first win on Saturday, but I reckon we should be able to pick up a point which would be fantastic and further fuel LPP's seemingly boundless joy.

Report: Leeds United 2-1 Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers exited the Carabao Cup in the first round after falling to a narrow defeat to Leeds United at Elland Road on Tuesday evening.

Goals from Patrick Bamford and Samuel Saiz were the difference for the home side, with debutant Erhun Oztumer scoring for the Whites.

FIRST HALF

Leeds started the brighter in the first half, with Samuel Saiz playing a delicate chip over the top for new Leeds frontman Patrick Bamford, who put his effort wide from six yards out.

Bolton had a half chance through Erhun Oztumer shortly after, with the Turkish midfielder playing a curled cross into the area, just out of reach from striker Connor Hall.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men replied instantly, with Bamford firing from distance but his effort was never troubling Whites keeper Remi Matthews, as it sailed wide of the mark.

Oztumer provided another cross on the 20-minute mark, with the set play finding the head of defender Jack Hobbs, whose effort found Leeds goalkeeper Jamal Blackman’s gloves.

A long throw from Jonathan Grounds found midfielder Gary O’Neil in space on the edge of the Leeds area, but his effort flashed wide of the goal.

Then, on the 27th minute, Patrick Bamford shrugged off a challenge from Hobbs, to fire low and hard into the back of the net to open the scoring.

Leeds nearly doubled their tally, with Saiz turning provider once again with a chip over the Bolton backline, but winger Jack Harrison could not find the target.

The home side then found the back of Bolton goal, catching the Whites on the break through Lewis Baker, as he squared the ball to Saiz who slotted the ball home.

SECOND HALF

Phil Parkinson’s men came back into the tie on the 52nd minute, when Oztumer found space just outside the opposition penalty area and calmly placed the ball past Blackman’s outstretched arm.

Leeds responded with a chance of their own shortly after, with Bamford again causing a nuisance, firing a volley over the bar from the 18-yard line.

Just after the hour mark and Bolton nearly found the equaliser, as Yanic Wildschut hit a shot from distance which was spilled by Blackman, but full back Grounds’ follow up effort failed to hit the target.

Jack Harrison came close for Bielsa’s men with 20 minutes to go, but his curled effort sailed into the stands.

Craig Noone fired a pinpoint cross field ball to find Wildschut in acres of space, but the Dutchman couldn’t place the ball past an onrushing Blackman.

Following that, Leeds left back Pearce had a strike from distance which was never troubling shot stopper Matthews.

Substitute Craig Noone came close as the game reached its climax, but his effort flew wide.

Wanderers: Matthews, Grounds (Taylor 73), Wilson, Hobbs, Little, Vela (C), O’Neil, Oztumer, Donaldson (Noone 57), Wildschut, Hall (Magennis 65)

Subs not used: Alnwick, Beevers, Olkowski, Pritchard

Attendance: 19,617
