Ewood Park

Here is how Blackburn Rovers and Leeds United line up this afternoon...

Blackburn Rovers starting line-up: Steele; Marshall, Duffy, Hanley, Spurr; Lenihan, Akpan, J. Gomez, Bennett; Watt, Graham.

Blackburn Rovers substitutes: Raya, Brown, Ward, Grimes, Evans, Conway, Jackson.

Leeds United travel to Lancashire this afternoon to take on Blackburn Rovers in the Championship, as they search for three wins in a row.

The Whites beat Cardiff City 2-0 on Tuesday night, as Souleymane Doukara and Mirco Antenucci found the back of the net, just days after Steve Evans' men beat Bolton Wanderers 2-1 at Elland Road.

Today, they travel to take on Paul Lambert's Blackburn side, who beat Birmingham City 2-0 at Ewood Park on Tuesday night, with manager Evans making just one change.

Midfielder Toumani Diagouraga returns to the starting line-up after being left on the bench against Cardiff, with Luke Murphy dropping back down to the bench.

Chris Wood returns to the bench after an extended period out through injury, whilst Evans has again named three wingers on the bench in Stuart Dallas, Mustapha Carayol and Jordan Botaka, along with goalkeeper Eric Grimes, who replaced Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Meanwhile, Blackburn are able to call upon the likes of Elliot Bennett, Tony Watt and Danny Graham in an attack-minded Rovers side, with Craig Conway and Simeon Jackson on the bench.
