Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Cardiff: Huge match for Evans

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Cardiff City will line up this week:

To be played on Tuesday 3rd November 2015 at 19:45. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 6/4, Draw 23/10, Cardiff 7/4

Leeds United welcome Cardiff City to Elland Road on Tuesday evening in a match the hosts will be desperate to win.

Steve Evans replaced former manager Uwe Rosler at Elland Road last month, but in the three matches since Leeds have picked up just two points and they were very disappointing in their recent 2-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

Leeds cannot afford to drop more home points if they want to steer clear of the bottom three, meaning victory later this week is imperative.

Leeds will be without the suspended Sol Bamba and on-loan midfielder Tom Adeyemi who is ineligible to play against his parent-club, but other than that Evans has a full squad to choose from.

Cardiff are doing considerably better so far this season and they are currently ninth in the Championship, two points outside the play-off places with 14 games played.

That said, the Bluebirds have drawn 0-0 in three of their last four matches so Leeds can win this one…if they are at their best.
