Steve Evans discusses whether he'll make changes to Leeds United's team against Huddersfield Town

Leeds United are set to face Huddersfield Town at Elland Road on Saturday.

Steve Evans has hinted in his interview with BBC Radio Leeds that he could make slight tweaks to Leeds United’s line-up for their match against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Leeds may have won their last three matches in quick succession, but Evans has suggested that he will not simply stick to the same line-up.

The Scottish boss is keen to explore all possibilities available to him, and he says that Leeds will be looking at alternative options in training today.

“We can pick the same 11, everyone is fit and available,” he said.

“We changed it by one person by one person at Blackburn from Cardiff. We have options and we are working on those options now. We’re going to look at one or two alternatives things, so we’ll be fresh and hopefully ready to do our supporters justice.”

The big boost for Leeds is that Chris Wood is now seemingly back to full fitness, after recovering from injury.

The target man played in a reserve team match against Peterborough United in midweek, and he scored in a 3-2 defeat.

Wood could be involved against Huddersfield, but there is no guarantees of him winning his place back.

The form of Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara has been impressive in the New Zealand international’s absence, meaning he faces a fight to get back into the Whites’ starting line-up.

If Leeds are able to beat Huddersfield on Saturday they will record four successive victories for the first time since 2009.
