Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Middlesbrough: One change from Evans

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Middlesbrough will line up on Monday:

To be played on Monday 15th February 2016 at 19:45. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 12/5, Draw 23/10, Middlesbrough 11/10

Leeds United welcome Middlesbrough to Elland Road next week with the visitors looking to consolidate their position at the top of the Championship table and the hosts aiming to move higher than their current position of 16th.

Boro may be leading the way for now but Leeds have the players to get all three points on Monday evening, although they will have to improve after their disappointing showing against Nottingham Forest last time out.

Leeds lost that match 1-0 while Middlesbrough recently drew 1-1 with MK Dons, with January signing Jordan Rhodes netting his first goal for his new side.

The last time these two sides met Boro ran out comfortable 3-0 winners with Leeds centre-back Giuseppe Bellusci having an absolute ‘mare for the visitors.

Since then he has improved considerably and he will be hoping to keep Rhodes and company at bay.

With that in mind here is how we predict the two sides will line up on Monday evening.
