Ahead of AFC Bournemouth’s trip to Leeds United on Tuesday for the Championship fixture, we spoke to Vital Leeds about what to expect.
With a special thanks to Daz from Vital Leeds who took the time to answer our questions.
Any tips on getting to and from the ground?
Elland Road football ground is right next to the M621 so very easy to get to by car and coach.
The train station is about 3 miles away but football specials buses run frequently direct to Elland Road before and after the game.
Where are the best places for a pre-match drink for away supporters?
Drysalters is the only designated away pub around the ground however there are lots of pubs in the city centre that do not attract the masses of Leeds fans.
Pubs around the station are best avoided. The Drysalters is at the far end of Elland Road and then about 150 yards on the left on the A653 (Dewsbury Road)
For any AFC Bournemouth supporters who haven’t been before, what is your ground like for away fans?
The away fans have been moved to the west stand and are now along the side of the pitch very similar to where Bournemouth house their away supporters.
Away fans have complained that the view is not good and the leg room is very tight.
For any Cherries supporters staying in the local area for a couple of days what’s the one thing you would recommend to do?
Visit the Royal Armouries or head out to the Emmerdale set.
Has your side changed much from last season?
Wholesale changes with fifteen players signed in the summer and most of those coming from abroad.
Who is your player to watch?
Hard to think of a key player. Marco Silvestri was superb at your place earlier in the season to keep us in the game in the first half.
I think he could be in for another busy night so he needs to be on top form.
What are your predictions for this game and the remainder of the season?
1-1 I hope we can grab a point. Unbelievably, despite us winning 3-1 at Bournemouth, you are the best team I have seen us play this season and for the first half, we couldn`t get near you.
I think we are in deep relegation trouble. Our few decent players are being offloaded, we cannot keep clean sheets and to make matters worse, we cannot score goals (Answered before Birmingham game.)
If we get any new information from Dorset Police we will add it here.
