With just four weekends till Xmas, this is the start of a crucial month for every league around the country.
Whilst League One and Two clubs are in FA Cup action, Leeds vs Aston Villa take centre stage on Sky Sports’ Friday Night Championship football.
Ronaldo Vieira is available again for Leeds United after suspension.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga is still out but Eunan O’Kane could make his return to midfield from a hip injury.
Aston Villa’s injury crisis is becoming full blown, after Miles Jedinak joins five other players on sidelines.
They include; John Terry, Henri Lansbury and Scott Hogan.
Thrilling opener in store?
We could have a thrilling first half in store here given that Leeds tend to score home goals before half time.
Aston Villa also tend to score in the opening half, albeit away from Villa Park.
This could be a thriller if both teams find goals before half time.
Although Adomah has been on fire lately for Villa, their and Steve Bruce’s record at Elland Road has been poor with no win since 2000.
For that reason, I am backing Leeds to edge it 2-1.
Prediction: Leeds United 2-1 Aston Villa
Result: Leeds 1-1 Aston Villa
