Confirmed Leeds United v Preston line-ups: Murphy starts, Doukara on the bench

Here is how Leeds United and Preston North End will line up this afternoon...

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Wootton, Bellusci, Cooper, Taylor, Byram, Bridcutt, Murphy, Cook, Dallas, Wood.

Leeds United substitutes: Peacock-Farrell, Coyle, Bamba, Phillips, Mowatt, Doukara, Antenucci.

Preston North End starting XI: Pickford; Cunningham, Clarke, Huntington; Vermijl, Welsh, Gallagher, Browne, Reach; Keane, Garner.

Preston North End substitutes: Hudson, Wright, Woods, Brownhill, Kilkenny, Hugill and Doyle.

Leeds United take on Preston North End at Elland Road this afternoon as manager Steve Evans looks for a third win in four games.

Leeds beat Wolves 3-2 on Thursday evening, with Evans' men coming from 1-0 down to claim an impressive victory at Molineux.

Today, Evans has made one change to his starting line-up, as Tom Adeyemi - who was substituted against Wolves during the first half - misses out, with Luke Murphy coming in.

There is no place in the starting line-up for Thursday's super sub Souleymane Doukara, who joins Mirco Antenucci and Sol Bamba on the bench.

Meanwhile, the game sees Preston manager Simon Grayson return to Elland Road, almost four years after leaving his position as Leeds boss.

Grayson has also made just one change from the midweek draw against Birmingham City, with Daniel Johnson failing a late fitness test, meaning John Welsh comes in to midfield.

Ex-Leeds defender Paul Huntington starts at centre back, whilst another former Leeds player, Neil Kilkenny, is available from the bench.
