Wilder expecting a tough test against ‘talented’ Leeds

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is expecting a tough test when his side host Leeds United tomorrow afternoon.

The Blades have started the season in fine form and are currently 5th in the Championship table ahead of the weekend’s clash.

But, Wilder’s men are set to face one of the toughest sides in the division when they face 2nd placed Leeds United, and Wilder is not underestimating the task at hand.

“We played really well last year at Elland Road in front of nearly 40,000 live on the TV and did extremely well to win both games,” he told his pre-match press conference.

“They will not want to think about that and we should not really.”

“They have a new manager, new ideas and a new direction added to what was already a really talented group to start with. He (Bielsa) is not going to be wracking it (last season) all up.”

The two sides face off tomorrow afternoon at Bramall Lane, with Leeds boosted with the return of Pontus Jansson.

Wilder will be hoping his side can put up a fight against Bielsa’s charges, when the two sides go head to head at Bramall Lane at 12:30 tomorrow.
