Here are predicted teams for the Championship clash between Leeds United and Cardiff.

To be played on Saturday 11th April 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 13/8, Draw 12/5, Cardiff 19/10

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn will be determined for his team to respond in the right way following back-to-back defeats in the Championship.

Redfearn has been left in a difficult position by the suspension of his assistant and it will be interesting to see how he gets the team playing heading into this game.

There were signs of change in the match against Wolves with Mirco Antenucci started up front, while Kalvin Phillips had a decent performance on his debut in the middle of the team.

Cardiff have taken one point in their last two games and were well beaten 3-0 in their last fixture by Bolton.

Cardiff are mid-table on the same number of points as Leeds, but ahead of Redfearn’s team in the table based on goal difference.

The BBC has reported that Cardiff boss Russell Slade is set for a trip to Malaysia to discuss his future at the club and he will do his chances of a longer contract some good with a positive performance and a strong end to the season, setting the side up well for the summer.
