‘I have a feeling’ – Mark Lawrenson predicts score in Leeds v Norwich, delivers Bamford verdict

  • by

Mark Lawrenson has backed Jesse Marsch to register his first win as Leeds United manager against Norwich on Sunday (March 13).

The American succeeded popular head coach Marcelo Bielsa and lost both of his games in charge.

The Elland Road faithful were audibly displeased with what they saw in the loss against Aston Villa and would want a win against the league’s bottom side.

On BBC, Lawrenson wrote, predicting a 2-0 win for Leeds, “I have a feeling Patrick Bamford will start this game for Leeds, which would be a huge boost for them because they have missed his goals so much.

“It’s a massive game for Leeds because, if they lose, then you would start to think they are in real danger of going down.

“Norwich already are in deep trouble, of course. They have pulled a couple of surprise wins out of the bag under Dean Smith since the turn of the year, but I don’t see another one here.”

Will take a win

Leeds are in desperate need of a win and will take three points in any way they get.

Even if it is a scrappy affair and they nick a goal at the end, the fans will be singing after full-time.

However, anything but a win would see pressure mounting on Marsch.

Despite it being only three wins into his new job, not winning against Norwich will be unacceptable.

Most Leeds fans are already against the board for sacking Marcelo Bielsa, so Marsch will have to go above and beyond to please them and keep them in the Premier League.
