Leeds United: Silvestri, Wootton, Bellusci, Cooper, C Taylor, Byram, Cook, Murphy, Austin, Mowatt, Morison

Subs: S Taylor, Berardi, Pearce, Bianchi, Sharp, Doukara, Antenucci

Bournemouth: Boruc, Francis, Cook, Elphick, Daniels, Ritchie, Arter, Surman, Pugh, Pitman, Wilson

Subs: Allsop, Smith, Gosling, O’Kane, Stanislas, Fraser, Kermorgant

Leeds United will be on the hunt for an elusive win this evening, but they couldn’t have picked a more difficult opponent for the challenge.

Leeds haven’t won a game since the end of November and Neil Redfearn is in desperate need of a boost, which will propel his side up the Championship table.

For Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth the job is simple; win, solidify their position at the top and pile on the misery for Leeds.

The stats are in their favour as they have scored 30 more goals in the league so far this season than Leeds, which will give them confidence they can secure a result.

With Middlesbrough also playing this evening, it’s vital for the Cherries that they defend themselves from attacks at the top, as ‘Boro could realistically close to within a point this evening, widening the group of rivals fighting for the Championship title.
