Steve Evans suggests he'll make changes to Leeds United's team to face Rotherham United

Elland Road East Stand

Leeds United are due to meet Rotherham United on Saturday.

Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he will make changes for Leeds United’s match against Rotherham United at the weekend.

Leeds are due to meet Rotherham on Saturday in what should be a fiercely contested Yorkshire derby.

The Whites go into the match on the back of a 4-1 defeat against Huddersfield Town, and Evans is now planning to make wholesale changes to his squad.

“We’ll make changes for Rotherham,” the 53-year-old boss said. “We’ll make these changes based on performance, which we should do, and we’ll also make changes based on system.”

Leeds’ heavy defeat to Huddersfield has plunged Evans’ future into doubt, with the Daily Mail suggesting he could depart at the end of the season.

Before their defeat to Huddersfield, the Whites had been in good form, though, and they could move up to 12th if they are able to beat Rotherham.

Leeds are also boosted by the news that they have nearly a full squad to pick from, with Ross Turnbull the only absentee.

Chris Wood is now back to full fitness, and Evans has hinted that the striker could come back into starting contention.

“He’s in terrific shape,” Evans added. “The wonderful news is that he’s really keen to play and he’s obviously in serious consideration.”
