Confirmed: Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers line-ups

Leeds United

Here is how Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Leeds starting XI: Silvestri, Wootton, Bamba, Bellusci, Berardi, Murphy, Austin, Mowatt, Taylor, Byram, Morison

Leeds subs: S Taylor, Cooper, Phillips, Dawson, Doukara, Antenucci, Sharp

Blackburn starting XI: Raya, Henley, Baptiste, Kilgallon, Olsson, Cairney, Spearing, Williamson, Marshall, Rhodes, Gestede

Blackburn subs: Steele, Spurr, Brown, O'Sullivan, P Taylor, Lenihan, Evan

Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers go head-to-head at Elland Road in a match that both sides will want to win.

Very little separates the two sides in the table at the moment, and a win for Leeds would see them leapfrog Gary Bowyer’s side and continue their good form since the turn of the year.

But a Blackburn victory and they would move five points clear of the Whites and ensure Leeds go two matches without a victory following their 1-1 draw with Blackpool last time out.

Unbeaten in their last five matches, Leeds are on another roll and Redfearn will want the recent turmoil off the pitch to be forgotten, at least for 90 minutes.

Blackburn on the other hand have lost their last two matches and a hat-trick of defeats is not what Bowyer wants as the season approaches the final straight.
