PHOTOS: Nicky Ajose trains as Leeds stars prepare for Rotherham clash

Leeds players were put through their paces ahead of Friday's Yorkshire derby.

So the Championship schedule has brought Leeds United fans not one but two Yorkshire derbies in a row...

First, Sheffield Wednesday visited Elland Road and left with a 1-1 draw. Now, it's Darko Milanic's side who take to the road as they travel to Rotherham.

Friday's hosts find themselves 17th in the Championship table and a two-goal win over Leeds would take them above their Yorkshire rivals, who are currently three points ahead in 14th place.

Ahead of the Rotherham clash, Leeds' stars were put through their paces at Thorp Arch during training on Wednesday.

And, to the shock and delight of many on Twitter, Nicky Ajose was one of the names that took part in practice.

Leeds are yet to win a league game under new boss Milanic, who has overseen one defeat - away at Brentford - and two home draws, against Reading and Wednesday respectively.

The points, then, will perhaps be even more valuable than usual for the Slovenian this Friday, as his Yorkshire side try to get the result they so need at the New York Stadium.

Kick-off is on Friday night at 7.45pm. In the meantime, here are the best images from today's training session...
