    Brentford - v - Leeds United ***Matchday Thread***



    Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa says his side are "not playing worse than before" despite a run of just two wins from 10 Championship matches.

    In mid-December the Whites had a 10-point gap to third place and while they remain second, they are now only above the play-off places on goal difference.

    On Tuesday they visit in-form Brentford, who are fifth but will move above Bielsa's side with victory.

    "The players are doing the same things that they used to do," he said.

    Bielsa told BBC Radio Leeds: "Before maybe we didn't pay for the mistakes in the good moments but now we are paying higher consequences.

    "We used to create chances and score those chances, and now we have those chances and we are not scoring."

    Leeds, who were*beaten 2-0 by Nottingham Forest on Saturday,*will start influential midfielder Kalvin Phillips after a three-match ban but Tyler Roberts (calf) misses out.

    On-loan RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin could make his first start after making his debut off the bench last time out.

    Brentford captain Pontus Jansson may return from a hip injury to face the club he left last summer.

    Shandon Baptiste and Tariqe Fosu - both signed from Oxford last month - are once again likely to start on the bench.

    Match facts:

    Brentford are unbeaten in their past nine home league matches against Leeds United (W6 D3) since losing 2-1 in August 1950.

    Leeds have not scored more than once in any of their previous 13 league matches against Brentford, netting just eight goals (W3 D5 L5).

    Should Leeds win at Brentford, it would be 69 years and 169 days since their last away league win there, their second biggest gap between away league wins against an opponent, with their longest standing at 74 years between wins at Millwall in 1931 and 2005.

    Brentford are looking to win three consecutive league games for the first time since October - they've won their last two by an aggregate score of 8-3.

    Leeds have lost their past six away league matches in London, including four away defeats this season alone at Charlton, Millwall, Fulham and QPR.

    We're getting emptied 3 - 0.

    MOT.

    think we are going to give them a hell of a game.

    unfortunately, we can't score and they score for fun.

    hoping for a 1 - 1 draw. an brentford own goal for us might be the best we can hope for.

    I remember last season, playing WBA, in a similar run of form. They were free scoring, we were struggling. No-one gave us a chance, we beat them 4-1.

    Leeds are capable of just about any type of performance, but my instinct is that we find our feet tonight and go on a decent enough run
