Leeds United vs Bristol City

Leeds United vs Bristol City

Just when City need a win to get out of the relegation zone, the opponents are Leeds away from home and it`s going to be a tough test for Keith Millen`s men.

City`s only win this season came five games ago when they beat Leicester, but all in all its been a bad season so far for the Robins

Leeds sit in mid-table, but they are only a couple of points ahead thats what makes this one an important game.

Leeds will include new midfield signing Mika Vayrynen in their squad but Adam Clayton remains doubtful after missing out last weekend with a calf strain.

Aidy White has served a one-game ban, so teenager Charlie Taylor is likely to make way after making his full debut against Crystal Palace.

Bristol City defender Liam Fontaine is still struggling with an ankle problem.

Jamie McAllister has undergone a successful operation on his ankle injury, but will be out for some time.

Millen is now under pressure to produce results at City, but the manager insists that he can handle that pressure and is prepared to take the stick from the crowd instead of his players.

He told the Bristol Evening Post: 'I've felt pressure from the day I took the job. Honestly, it is no different from one week to the next.

'As we found last year, the longer you are down there, the quicker the pressure builds. But my job is to take that and deal with it and keep it away from the players.

'It doesn't worry me. As a manager, pressure and criticism is something you have to accept.

'The players know they have to concentrate on what they do on the pitch and leave me to worry about everything else. At the end of the day, it's what you do on the pitch that counts and if the players do their job properly, then the other things take care of themselves.

'When the pressure is on, the last thing you want is for players to feel uptight or to be lacking in confidence. I don't mind taking the stick, just so long as the players feel able to go out there and make things happen.'
