Eddie Gray picks out key Leeds trio ahead of Sheffield Wednesday meeting

Eddie Gray believes that Leeds United may have the edge in the centre of the park when it comes to their meeting with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday evening at Elland Road.

The Whites will go in search of three more precious points in the Championship, as they look to keep their spot in the top two of the division.

They currently sit second in the league with five games to go and have it in their own hands to secure automatic promotion.

Leeds legend Gray is adamant that his former side can win the battle in midfield and cause Wednesday real problems.

He believes that the trio of Tyler Roberts, Mateusz Klich and Pablo Hernandez are a serious threat.

 

“I think when I look at the Sheffield Wednesday side in that midfield area they have got a lot of players that can play in going forward. I don’t know how they will be in defensive areas if he (Hernandez) drifts in and Roberts and Klich get forward. We’ve got more than enough to win the game,” Gray told LUTV.

TBR’s View

Leeds do have real attacking firepower from several areas of the pitch and there is no doubt that they can dominate the midfield against any Championship team if they start well.

Hernandez is perhaps the biggest threat that Wednesday will need to look out for, but he’s so difficult to pick up when he drifts into little pockets of space.

Meanwhile, Klich and Roberts provide tireless running through the centre and are backed up by the defensive enforcer Kalvin Phillips behind them.
