David Prutton backs Leeds to overcome Bolton

Former Leeds United midfielder David Prutton has claimed that the Whites will have far too much for Bolton Wanderers in their Championship clash this weekend.

Leeds have won each of their last four in the Championship, with that run of form leaving them second in the table, just one point off league leaders Norwich City.

Bolton, meanwhile, sit 23rd in the table having gone 11 matches without a victory in the second tier of English football.

Leeds have actually only won two of their last four away from home in the Championship, and were thumped 4-1 at West Bromwich Albion last month.

However, Prutton, who turned out for Leeds between 2007 and 2010, has tipped his former team to record ‘a comfortable away win’.

Prutton wrote on Sky Sports:

“It really doesn’t bode well for Bolton that they scored two goals in a game for the first time since September 1 against Norwich but they still came away without a point.

“Leeds have a massive injury list but it hasn’t caught up with them yet and Marcelo Bielsa has done a terrific job of managing their squad.

“Even with all the absentees I can’t see this being anything but a comfortable away win.”

Liam Cooper, Stuart Dallas, Luke Ayling, Tom Pearce and Gaetano Berardi are all currently on the sidelines for Leeds during a busy stage of the season.
