Leeds United host Aston Villa on Friday and will be hoping to record back to back league victories for the first time in almost 3 months.
The Whites got the better of Barnsley at the weekend with a 2-nil victory, and while manager Thomas Christiansen is likely to make very few changes to the starting lineup that got the job done last timeout, it’s expected he sticks with Felix Wiedwald in goal.
However, former Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Keith Andrews believes that might not be the case, considering that the manager’s decision to drop the German in the first place has created uncertainty.
The Sky Sports pundit claims Christiansen should have stuck with Wiedwald no matter what, saying post-game: “He left him out of the team too soon. I thought it was the wrong decision at the time.
“He needed an arm round the shoulder from the manager. Now he’s created uncertainty.”
The 27-year-old was dropped from the starting XI following a string of errors in favour of Andy Lonergan.
Following 7 league games, 5 losses and 13 goals shipped, the German was returned for weekend’s game where a couple of saves helped Leeds to all 3 points.
Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if Christiansen will be sticking with him for the Aston Villa game and more importantly for the rest of the campaign.
