Confirmed: Leeds United v Watford line-ups - Sharp starts, Adryan on bench

Here is how Leeds United and Watford will line up for this afternoon’s match at Elland Road.

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri; Wootton, Cooper, Bamba, C Taylor; Byram, Murphy, Austin, Cook, Mowatt; Sharp.

Leeds United subs: S Taylor, Berardi, Sloth, Adryan, Walters, Antenucci, Cani.

Watford starting XI: Gomes; Paredes, Ekstrand, Cathcart, Anya; Layun, Watson, Tozser; Abdi; Deeney (c), Vydra.

Watford subs: Bond, Angella, Hoban, Pudil, Motta, Munari, Forestieri.

Slavisa Jokanovic's Watford have won seven of their last ten games, and will be looking to continue their promotion push when they face Leeds United at Elland Road.

The Hornets lie just four points adrift of the automatic promotion places, and despite having four different managers this season, they continue to impress.

Jokanovic can't call upon new signing Adlene Guediora, who wasn't signed in time, whilst prolific striker Odion Ighalo misses out with a hamstring injury.

Their trip to Elland Road promises to be a difficult one, with Neil Redfearn's men in a good run of form despite Tuesday's defeat to Brighton.

Redfearn has brought in Billy Sharp up front in the lone striker role, with usual starter Steve Morison ruled out through injury.

Youth team graduate Lewis Walters makes the bench alongside Brazilian playmaker Adryan, in what again looks like an attack-minded bench from Leeds.
