Leeds United take on Rotherham United at Elland Road this afternoon in a game which marks the bizarre swap of the two managers.

On the final day of last season, Leeds hosted Rotherham with Neil Redfearn in charge, whilst Steve Evans was celebrating having kept Rotherham in the Championship.

Today, Evans is in charge of Leeds against his former club, whilst Redfearn returns to Elland Road for the first time since his departure, and is desperate to get a result with Rotherham struggling at the wrong end of the table.

The Whites are unchanged from the 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town before the international break, with centre back Liam Cooper taking the captain's armband due to an injury to Sol Bamba.

The bench features the likes of Sam Byram and Will Buckley, whilst Lee Erwin is available having returned from his loan spell at Bury, with Jordan Botaka also on the bench.

Meanwhile, Rotherham boss Redfearn can call upon new signing Leon Best, who has joined on a free transfer, whilst ex-Leeds youngster Danny Ward is available from the bench.
