Leeds vs Derby County: David Prutton has delivered his prediction
Leeds have lost four of their last five games to drop from the top of the Championship table to fifth place.
They host Derby County, who have won their last three on the spin, tomorrow night (7.45pm).
And Prutton believes the Rams represent a proper challenge for Leeds.
“A few weeks ago this would have been a nailed on home win but I'm not so sure now,” the former Whites midfielder told Sky Sports.
“Leeds have lost their last two games at home now and seem to have lost a bit of their early-season swagger.
