Confirmed: Leeds United v Ipswich Town line-ups

Leeds United

Here are the confirmed sides for Leeds United and Ipswich Town this evening.

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn will be hoping his team can produce a better defensive display than they managed last weekend as they went down 3-2 at the hands of Watford. The side have been in good form despite a couple of recent setbacks and this is a chance for them to work towards the top half of the table. There is going to be pressure on the midfield this evening, because the side won’t have Rodolph Austin to fall back on because he’s carrying a thigh problem which keeps him out of action.

Ipswich are well in the hunt for promotion into the Premier League, which makes every game massive for them at the moment. They are going to be taking this match deadly seriously because they have just fallen outside the play-off places due to results last night. They also go into this game after a bad result in the East Anglia derby last weekend, but they’ll be confident because they have a superior attacking and defensive record when compared to Leeds so far this season.
