Leeds United must be wary of Nelson Oliveira who is notorious for scoring against them

The striker has enjoyed vast success in front of goal against the Whites in the past.

Leeds United face Reading this evening looking to enhance their automatic promotion chances.

The Whites can go back to the top of the Championship with a win as Norwich City aren’t in action until Wednesday.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men come up against a Royals side who need points for contrasting reasons, as Jose Gomes’ side look to stave off the threat of relegation.

One man who they could come up against is a player they were has haunted Leeds in the past.

Nelson Oliveira has a history of scoring against the Whites and he will hope to trouble Leeds once more.

The Portuguese forward didn’t notch against the club last season, but he does have five previous goals against the club.

 

His brace earned Norwich a 3-3 draw during the 2016/17 campaign whilst he scored in both of Forest’s games against Leeds during 2015/16, earning the Reds four points.

Oliveira has been in good form for the Royals since arriving in January.

The 27-year-old has scored three goals in six games and will love the chance to add to his tally against the promotion hopefuls tonight.

The lively striker has a proven history of goals against Leeds and Bielsa will need to be wary of the talisman.

Leeds have been pretty resolute at the back this season and they will need to stand firm once again tonight as they look to thwart Oliveira.
