Confirmed: Leeds v Hull lineups

Leeds United and Hull City will face each other at Elland Road in the Championship this afternoon…

Leeds United will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship this afternoon when they take on Hull City at home.

The Whites will head into the encounter at Elland Road on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Queens Park Rangers away from home at Loftus Road.

Steve Evans’s side have lost their last two league games, and there is a danger that they could be sucked into a relegation dogfight.

Leeds are 17th in the Championship table at the moment with just 19 points from 18 matches, only four points above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Hull, who got relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, are in the running for a top-two finish in the Championship this campaign.

The Tigers are currently fourth in the standings with 35 points from 18 matches, just four points behind leaders Middlesbrough, who have played a game more.

Steve Bruce’s side are not in good form at the moment, though, having failed to win any of their last three competitive games.

Leeds United XI: Silvestri, Wootton, Bellusci, Cooper, Taylor, Dallas, Adeyemi, Cook, Bridcutt, Mowatt, Wood

Subs: Peacock-Farrell, Byram, Murphy, Botaka, Erwin, Doukara, Antenucci

Hull City XI: McGregor, Odubajo, Bruce, Huddlestone, Clucas, Maguire, Livermore, Diame, Aluko, Robertson, Elmohamady
