Confirmed: Leeds United and Brentford line-ups

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

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Berardi, Cooper, Bamba, Taylor, Adeyemi, Cook, Mowatt, Byram, Dallas, Wood

Leeds United subs: Turnbull, Wootton, Bellusci, Murphy, Phillips, Doukara, Antenucci

Brentford starting XI: Button, Colin, Tarkowski, Dean, Bidwell, Kerschbaumer, McCormack, Diagouraga, Vibe, Djuricin, Judge

Brentford subs: Hofmann, Woods, Bonham, O'Connell, Barbet, Udumaga, Canos

Leeds United take on Brentford at Elland Road later today with Uwe Rosler’s side looking for back-to-back victories after defeating Derby County prior to the international break.

Leeds are currently 11th in the Championship table with seven points from their first five matches while Brentford are 18th, three points worse off than today’s opponents.

Leeds may have struggled to turn draws into wins in the opening weeks of the new campaign but they remain undefeated and that fighting spirit bodes well for Rosler and his team as they bid to return to the top flight after so long away.

However Leeds have managed to score just one goal in their last four meetings with Brentford, drawing two and losing two.

It should make for a tough encounter but Brentford have only kept two clean sheets in their last 14 visits to Elland Road so who knows what will happen this afternoon in what is sure to be an entertaining match?
