The 46-year-old took charge of the Whites last month, but his first two matches have ended in a draw and a loss.
While Leeds went down 2-0 to Brentford away from home last weekend, on Wednesday they were held to a goalless draw by Reading at home.
Leeds will head into the Yorkshire derby placed 12th in the Championship table with 14 points from 10 matches, four points behind sixth-placed Charlton Athletic.
Meanwhile, Wednesday are currently ninth in the league table with 16 points from 10 matches. However, Stuart Gray’s side are not in great form at the moment, having gone winless for three games.
Wednesday drew 1-1 with Ipswich Town on Tuesday following a 2-1 away defeat to Cardiff City and a 7-0 hammering by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the third round of the League Cup.
It promises to be a exciting Yorkshire derby at Elland Road today, and here is how the two teams will line up:
