Leeds boss Rosler reportedly considering starting Botaka and Antenucci against Brighton

The Leeds United manager could shake up his attacking options for the weekend clash.

According to a report from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler is set to make changes for the visit of Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.

Leeds are currently 16th in the table after picking up just 11 points from a possible 30, while in contrast Brighton have dropped only eight points all season.

However, Leeds have the players to cause their opponents plenty of trouble and they will not want to set a new club record for games without a home win.

The YEP claims Gaetano Berardi – who limped off prior to the international break – should be fit to start in place of Sam Byram, but that Rosler is set to make changes further forward.

Italian striker Mirco Antenucci is allegedly in line to start against Brighton while summer signing Jordan Botaka – fresh from a goal for DR Congo this week – is said to be hopeful of starting ahead of loan addition Will Buckley.

The latter underperformed on his Leeds debut so it would be no surprise to see Buckley dropped to the bench as he continues to build up his fitness.
