Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Blackburn: Three changes from Evans

Blackburn Rovers - Ronnie Clayton billboard

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 12th March 2016 at 12:30. Venue: Ewood Park, Blackburn

Odds: Blackburn 4/5, Draw 12/5, Leeds 18/5

Leeds United travel to Ewood Park on Saturday to take on Blackburn Rovers in their latest Championship encounter.

Steve Evans’s side have won their last two matches against Bolton Wanderers and Cardiff City respectively and this will be another chance for the Whites to show that they have well and truly turned a corner.

Leeds are currently 15th in the Championship with 44 points from 35 matches and victory this weekend could lift them into the top half of the table if other results go their way.

As for Blackburn, Paul Lambert’s men are one place and one point worse off than Leeds so this is likely to be a very tight encounter.

Blackburn defeated Birmingham City 2-0 last time out to put their 1-0 defeat to Burnley behind them.

Both sides are likely to play very strong line-ups so here is how we expect them to turn out on Saturday:
