Team news: Leeds United v Rovers

Rovers name an unchanged team for the clash at Elland Road to take on the high-flying Lilywhites

9 November 2019

Tony Mowbray has named an unchanged starting XI and an unchanged squad for today's game against Leeds United at Elland Road.

Bradley Dack makes his 100th league appearance in Rovers colours, whilst Adam Armstring appears for the 50th time in the league since joining permanently from Newcastle United in the summer of 2018.

Stewart Downing continues in midfield and is likely to start on one of the flanks in a forward-thinking three that will start behind Sam Gallagher.

Former United midfielder Bradley Johnson starts on the bench against his old side, and the 32-year-old will be hoping for a similar result to his last trip to Elland Road, with his Derby County team earning victory in the play-offs last term.

The hosts also name an unchanged side from their home victory against Queens Park Rangers a week ago, which means one of Downing's former team-mates in Patrick Bamford will lead the line for Marcelo Bielsa's charges.

Bielsa's boosted by the returns of Spanish schemer Pablo Hernandez and left back Barry Douglas, who are both available as substitutes if needed.

Macedonian international Ezgjan Alioksi remains sidelined along with Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah, Jamie Shackleton and midfield playmaker Adam Forshaw.

Kick-off is at 3pm and if you can't make the game then you can track all the action on iFollow Rovers and our social media channels.

Leeds United: Casilla, Ayling, White, Cooper (c), Bamford, Roberts, Dallas, Costa, Harrison, Phillips, Klich.

Substitutes: Meslier, Douglas, Hernandez, Berardi, Gotts, Davis, Clarke.

Rovers: Walton, Bennett (c), Nyambe, Adarabioyo, Williams, Downing, Travis, Armstrong, Dack, Holtby, Gallagher.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Johnson, Rothwell, Graham, Evans, Bell, Buckley.
