Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough believes that he has found the weakness of Leeds United before his side’s trip to Elland Road on Saturday.
Clough, 51, is in the belief that the Whites are still settling down after what has been a frantic summer for the club which has left the squad pretty much unrecognisable from the one that just missed out on the play-off places under the charge of Garry Monk last season.
However Leeds have had a very strong start to the new campaign and look as though they are in solid contention to challenge for promotion after winning three and drawing two of their opening five.
That form hasn’t eluded Clough though, who is still wary that it could be a hard task for relegation candidates Burton.
“I think they are still settling down as to what they want to be,” he said about Leeds on Wednesday, as quoted by Burton’s official Twitter account.” They have had a good start.”

As the international break nears it’s end, it will be the first time that Leeds fans will get to have a look at their now complete squad after last week saw yet more new faces brought in by Thomas Christiansen.
Pawel Cibicki and Pierre-Michel Lasogga were both snapped up to replace Chris Wood, who left for Burnley for £15million in August.
Lasogga is a doubt for the game as he is expecting the birth of his child while Cibicki is very much in contention to make his debut against a Burton side that have won just one of their opening five fixtures.
In other Leeds United news, fans have been left ruing their luck after this summer signing was hit with a cruel injury blow.
