Steve Evans drops Leeds United team selection hint ahead of Hull City match

Leeds United are set to host Hull City on Saturday.

Steve Evans has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he intends to make two or three changes to his Leeds United starting line-up to face Hull City on Saturday.

Leeds have lost their last two matches – against Rotherham United and Queens Park Rangers – and they have failed to impress in either of the fixtures.

As a result, Evans intends to add some fresh faces to his starting line-up as he searches for the winning formula at Elland Road.

"I will never be a manager who would make wholesale changes. There will be two or three changes," he revealed. "I don't see ourselves as underdogs against Hull."

Leeds’ latest two defeats have increased the pressure on Evans, with the voices of discontent at his leadership starting to grow louder.

Chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” could be heard from the Leeds end at Loftus Road, as the Whites fell to a 1-0 defeat.

Leeds failed to pose any sort of threat in the contest, and their lack of attacking spark has been a major source of frustration of late.

The Whites will be under pressure to improve at the weekend, as Hull have proven to be one of the most formidable opponents in the Championship this season.

The Tigers look to be one of the leading contenders for promotion, and it will take a huge effort from Leeds to claim the three points.
