Fulham boss Kit Symons comments on team selection for Leeds United clash

Ross McCormack injured for Leeds United

Fulham manager Kit Symons says that Gabor Kiraly will start against Leeds United, while Ross McCormack is also likely to feature in the Championship encounter.

Fulham manager Kit Symons has revealed that Gabor Kiraly will start against Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday.

First-choice custodian Marcus Bettinelli is suspended for the Championship encounter due to his dismissal against Watford last weekend.

“Gabor will come in,” Fulham’s official website quotes Symons as saying. “Obviously he’s a Hungary international, very experienced, so he’s the natural one to come in.”

One Fulham player who is likely to start against Leeds is Ross McCormack. The Scotland international attacker will face his former club for the first time since leaving them in the summer transfer window.

The 28-year-old has scored four goals and created 39 chances in 19 Championship appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 57%.

Fulham will head into the encounter placed 18th in the Championship table with 22 points from 20 matches, while Leeds are a point and two places above them.
