David Prutton predicts Leeds v Fulham
By Harvey Byrne
David Prutton has predicted both Leeds and Fulham to cancel each other out in Tuesday evening’s Championship clash.
The Yorkshire giants are currently preparing for their third clash within a week at Elland Road, which will see them take on the Cottagers after they beat them to a play-off pace in the last campaign.
The last time the two sides met in March an early Tim Ream own goal was cancelled out by a late strike by Tom Cairney in a 1-1 draw.
Now, Prutton has predicted the exact same scoreline, explaining that he expects Fulham to kick into gear at some stage after starting the 2017-18 campaign with two draws.
“Leeds have had a decent start but would have been frustrated not to get the three points against Preston on Saturday, especially after netting so many in their opening two games,” told Prutton, as quoted by the Sky Sports website.

“You get the feeling Fulham will kick into gear at some stage, but a draw at Reading was a good result after playing basically 90 minutes with 10 men. Another draw for them at Elland Road.”
Leeds are coming off the back of a 0-0 draw against Preston on Saturday and will be keen to return to winning ways as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, Fulham achieved a 1-1 draw against Reading on Saturday after seeing Tomas Kalas sent off within the first minute and they will be eager to get their first win on the board.
A draw for Leeds could see them move up to fifth place, depending on results elsewhere, while a win could even see them take the top spot.
