Last week saw Leeds beat Sheffield Wednesday at home while Sheffield United could only draw at home with Millwall conceding a 95th minute equalizer. This Friday, Leeds host struggling Wigan while their promotion rivals are home to Nottingham Forest.

Leeds United will be confident of three home points though to make it three league wins in a row. Five of the last six home league games have been won
Wigan Athletic are one place above the relegation zone and two points clear of Rotherham United with a much better goal difference. The Latics keep on getting relegated and then promoted again the following season, another relegation this season is still a possibility due to their poor away form.

With just three points from their last ten away league games, Leeds can get a vital home win.
