Sky Sports pundit predicts Leeds v Derby
By Laura O’Leary
David Prutton believes Leeds United will make it three games in a row without a win, and will fail to beat Derby on Tuesday.
Sky Sports’ expert tipper thinks the game will end in a 1-1 draw when Leeds welcome Derby to Elland Road.
The Whites have only won one game in their last six across all competitions, slumping to five defeats in that period.
Despite this downturn in form, Thomas Christiansen’s side still find themselves in the play-off positions, in fifth, seven points off leaders Sheffield United.
Sheffield United handed Leeds their latest defeat when they played them last Friday evening, walking out 2-1 winners.

Prutton who spent three years plying his trade at Leeds, revealed his prediction would have been more positive for Leeds fans just a few weeks ago.
He said: “A few weeks ago this would have been a nailed on home win but I’m not so sure now.
“Leeds have lost their last two games at home now and seem to have lost a bit of their early-season swagger.”
The former midfielder added that Derby recent upturn in form contributed to his prediction.
Derby have not suffered defeat in the Championship in their last six games, last losing to Bristol City 4-1 back in September.
After their recent form, Derby currently find themselves in seventh, one point behind Leeds but they have played one less game.
