Confirmed: Full Leeds United 2015/16 Championship fixture list - Lancashire clubs at the start and end of season

Leeds United 2

Leeds United begin with a home match against Burnley, one of the relegated Premier League clubs on August 8.

Leeds United begin life under new manager Uwe Rosler looking to make a serious assault on the Championship playoffs, and they have Sean Dyche's Burnley side up first on the opening day.

It has been too long that the Whites have been out of the top flight, and under the ownership of Massimo Cellino, the club's supporters have seen plenty of unpredictable and dramatic events unfold at Elland Road.

The hope is that with the former Brentford and Wigan boss, things are set to settle down a bit, enough for the famous Yorkshire club to make a genuine attempt at being in or around the playoff places.

However, they kick off the season with a testing match hosting relegated Premier League outfit Burnley on August 8, before away fixtures against Reading and League One champions Bristol City. A home game with Sheffield Wednesday and a trip to Derby round out the rest of the opening month.

Leeds will contest the West Yorkshire derby with Huddersfield Town initially away on November 7, and then at home on March 19.

The club closes the season with a trip to another Lancashire club, travelling to Preston, who are back in the Championship.

Rosler will welcome his former club Brentford to Leeds in the first game of September (9th).

October is a decent month for Leeds when they have home matches against Birmingham and Brighton, away trips to Fulham and Bolton, and a home game against Blackburn.

Likewise, February sees three home matches and winnable away games against Birmingham and Brighton.

After playing Burnley on the opening day, they don't face another relegated Premier League side until November, but they then face QPR away (28th) and Hull at home (December 5) in successive matches.

As always, April will be a vital month, with seven fixtures scheduled, four of which are at home.
