Leeds on a revenge mission: Dallas


Sore point: Stuart Dallas
Sore point: Stuart Dallas

Leeds winger Stuart Dallas will be seeking revenge in today's Championship game at Wigan.

Wigan's shock win at Elland Road during last season's run-in was the catalyst for a miserable sequence of results for Leeds, which cost them automatic promotion and they ultimately lost in the play-offs.

Leeds were 1-0 up against the Latics' 10 men following the early dismissal of Cedric Kipre, but went on to lose 2-1 and Northern Ireland international Dallas has unfinished business.

"There were a lot more games than the Wigan game, but it was definitely a big turning point," Dallas said. "We were 1-0 up and cruising and they had a man sent off, so we were disappointed.

"I'm sure the boys will be champing at the bit to get at them. We definitely owe them one."

Sheffield Wednesday will be bidding to stay top with a third straight league win when they take on Millwall at the Den.

Charlton are the only other team with a 100 per cent record and they travel to Barnsley.

Millwall, QPR, West Brom, Birmingham, Derby and Swansea are all looking to extend their unbeaten starts.

QPR play at Bristol City, who are chasing their first win, and Luton, yet to taste a league victory since becoming third-tier champions, are up against West Brom.

Birmingham head to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest, while Stoke aim for their first points against Derby.

Swansea clash with Preston in Wales, Brentford play Hull at Griffin Park and winless Blackburn hope to move off bottom spot against Middlesbrough.
