Farke dismisses Rotherham’s chances on Friday

Leeds United boss Daniel Farke says he will not be putting massive thought into changing his game plan ahead of their clash on Friday.

The Whites sit in third place in the Championship after they strung three consecutive wins ahead of the international break, including beating league leaders Leicester City. Leeds sit only eight points behind first place and have a massive chance to cut the gap as they face Rotherham who are third from bottom.

Rotherham United themselves are having a difficult start to the season, after narrowly surviving relegation last year. The team have only won two games this season, and sacked manager Matt Taylor a week ago.

When asked if the managerial change would affect Leeds’ game plan this Friday, Farke said he wouldn’t expect much from Rotherham:

“It’s tricky because after a change because you expect different decisions in the line-up and formation and the new manager effect. There’s always a bit of fresh air and everyone wants to make their point. It’s still the same squad though. Their interim coach was also their assistant so I don’t expect them to start playing like Man City. You would choose to have a smoother preparation but we will have to fight it.”

The Whites have won their last four games in a row against Rotherham, however their last defeat to The Millers came away from home in 2016. Leeds fans would be hoping to avoid an upset as they keep up their Premier League promotion charge on Friday night.

He didn’t and if he had it would have been a bit silly as that would be all the motivation Rotheram would need!!
