Confirmed Leeds v Charlton line-ups: Botaka starts, Diagouraga left on the bench

Here is how Leeds and Charlton will line up this afternoon...

Leeds United starting line-up: Silvestri, Coyle, Bamba, Cooper, Taylor, Bridcutt, Murphy, Cook, Dallas, Botaka, Wood.

Leeds United substitutes: Peacock-Farrell, Wootton, Diagouraga, Phillips, Mowatt, Erwin, Antenucci.

Charlton Athletic starting line-up: Pope, Fanni, Diarra, Teixeira, Fox, Kashi, Jackson, Harriott, Gudmundsson, Lookman, Vetokele.

Charlton Athletic substitutes: Mitov, Sarr, Lennon, Motta, Suk-Young, Ba, Makienok.

Leeds United will be looking to make it five games unbeaten as they take on Charlton Athletic at Elland Road this afternoon.

The Whites won three games in a row before drawing with promotion-chasing Hull City last weekend, and manager Steve Evans needs to keep picking up points if he is to stand any chance of keeping his job this summer.

Today, Evans has made three changes to his side, as Luke Murphy comes back into midfield in place of Frenchman Toumani Diagouraga, who has been let on the bench, with Liam Bridcutt keeping his place in midfield.

Right back Gaetano Berardi misses out through injury, so Lewie Coyle comes into defence, whilst winger Jordan Botaka is handed a rare start having impressed as a substitute against Hull City last weekend.

Meanwhile, Charlton are already relegated and merely playing for pride right now, with Jose Riga calling on his bigger-name players like Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Igor Vetokele, whilst former Liverpool midfielder Alou Diarra also starts.

The likes of Marco Motta, Yun Suk-Young and Simon Makienok are all on the bench for the Addicks, who will be hoping to give their fans something to shout about this afternoon.
