Confirmed: Leeds United and Brighton line-ups

Elland Road

Here is how Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Leeds starting XI: Silvestri, Wootton, Cooper, Bamba, Berardi, Adeyemi, Cook, Mowatt, Botaka, Dallas, Wood

Leeds subs: Horton, Bellusci, Phillips, Murphy, Buckley, Byram, Antenucci

Brighton starting XI: Stockdale, Bruno, Greer, Dunk, Bong; Rosenior, Kayal, Stephens, March; Baldock, Hemed

Brighton subs: Maenpaa (GK), Huenemeier, Calderon, Crofts, Ince, Manu, Zamora

Leeds United welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Elland Road for their first Championship match since the international break.

Leeds have plenty of work to do as they bid to climb up the table from their current position of 16th, but they could not have asked for a much tougher match than against the current league leaders Brighton.

That said, Chris Houghton’s side have not been running away with matches this season and they have drawn their last three encounters, suggesting Leeds could sneak this if they play to their full potential.

Leeds manager Uwe Rosler certainly has the players to do that but it is time some of his star-names took the lead of the likes of Charlie Taylor and showed just what they are capable of.

This one really could go either way, with a score-draw perhaps the most likely option at this stage.
