The Yorkshire club have lost their last three competitive matches and have won just twice in six games in all competitions this season.
The former Premier League outfit stumped to a 2-1 defeat to Bradford City away from home in the second round of the League Cup on Wednesday, and that saw Dave Hockaday lose his job as the Leeds manager.
That loss to their Yorkshire rivals followed a thumping 4-1 away defeat to Watford and a 2-0 home loss to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Championship, leaving Leeds just a place above the relegation zone.
Immediately below the 1972 FA Cup winners in the league table are today’s opponents, Bolton. Dougie Freedman’s side have picked up just one point from their four league fixtures and are currently third from bottom in the standings.
Today’s match at Elland Road promises to be an exciting one, and here is how Leeds and Bolton will line up:
