Elland Road pitchside

Here is how Leeds United and Bristol City will line up at Elland Road this afternoon...

Leeds United starting line-up: Silvestri; Wootton, Bellusci, Cooper, Taylor; Dallas, Bridcutt, Murphy, Cook, Carayol; Doukara.

Leeds United substitutes: Peacock-Farrell, Coyle, Bamba, Adeyemi, Phillips, Antenucci, Wood.

Bristol City starting line-up: O'Donnell; Ayling, Flint, Baker, Bryan; Burns, Gladwin, Pack, Smith, Freeman; Kodjia.

Bristol City substitutes: O'Leary, Little, Pearce, Reid, Wagstaff, Agard, Wilbraham.

Leeds United will be looking to end a five game run without a victory in the Championship today as they host struggling Bristol City this afternoon.

The Whites suffered two away defeats in a row last week, losing 2-1 away at Ipswich before a 2-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday a week ago..

Manager Steve Evans has named his first line-up since the sale of Sam Byram to West Ham United, and he has gone with Stuart Dallas and Mustapha Carayol out wide.

Souleymane Doukara leads the line again, with Chris Wood on the bench following injury, whilst Tom Adeyemi is on the bench amid questions over his future at Elland Road, with Toumani Diagouraga set to join from Brentford.

Meanwhile, opponents Bristol City head into the match having won just one of their last seven games, and a poor campaign so far saw manager Steve Cotterill lose his job earlier this month.

Caretaker boss John Pemberton takes charge again today, and he has new signing Ben Gladwin to call upon in midfield following his loan move from QPR.

Fellow new signing Alex Pearce is on the bench, alongside Kieran Agard and Aaron Wilbraham as Bristol City search for a much-needed in in their fight against relegation.
