If there is no improvement over Tuesday's performance, the one consolation is that at least this game will be over and done with early enough for us to be able to recover and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Looks like we may see a change in formation and also Ben Amos in goal, although I would like to see City persist with the wing backs, at least at home.

The game is on Sky, so maybe an even lower crowd than recently. Leeds will bring strong support anyway.

City to nick it 2 - 1

Looks as if 5-3-2 has been ditched in favour of 4-5-1 or 4-4-2.
Amos,
Peltier, Morrison, Connolly, Richards.
Noone, Whittingham, Gunnarsson, Ralls.
Pilkington.

4-3-3 dropping to 4-5-1 I think.

First chance for me to see the team this season. Not too bad but deffo lack a cutting edge. If that continues then it places enormous pressure on the defence which don't exactly look 100% solid.

Important second half this one.

Still too pedestrian. No Harris, no John, who are the only pacy players we have.

Leeds looking comfortable as we haven't got much variation in attack. Feel really sorry for Ricky Lambert.

Pilkington has been injured and unable to run for some time but not being subbed?!

He's off now, but he hasn't been effective today.

Oh dear, what a shambles.  Could play until Christmas and never look like scoring. The formation makes no difference, there is just no ooomph!

Nathan Blake said that the display was listless and uninspiring but that it was representative of the atmosphere throughout the club!
