Steve Evans looks ahead to Leeds' clash with Rotherham

The Leeds United manager may be forced to make a couple of changes for the weekend fixture.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has been speaking to the club’s official Twitter account about the upcoming Championship match against Rotherham United.

Leeds are currently 15th in the Championship but a victory against Evans’ former side could lift them into the top half of the table, and make it three league wins on the bounce for the Whites.

That will be easier said than done but Evans was keeping his cards close to his chest when he spoke about the build-up to the game.

“It’s a big opportunity for us to win three games in a row and as everyone in English football and the Championship knows that is very difficult to achieve,” Evans said.

“We’ve got one or two knocks, there may be one or two changes to the team. I don’t want to give the people down the M1 any knowledge of what we’re going to do.”

Evans will not want to change a winning team if he can help it but those knocks may force him to change things up. However, Leeds have the squad now to deal with a few injuries and it will be interesting to see who takes to the field at Elland Road on Saturday.

The international break has allowed Evans to run the rule over some of his fringe players while the recent friendly against Wycombe Wanderers gave some of Leeds’ lesser lights the chance to stake a claim for a first-team shot.
