The XI Leeds United should pick against Fleetwood Town

Leeds United manager Garry Monk

Leeds are looking to bounce back against former boss Uwe Rosler this week.

Leeds United will be looking to put their nightmare Championship start behind them when they face Fleetwood Town in the Capital One Cup this week.

Last year at this stage they lost to Doncaster Rovers, when they were under the management of Uwe Rosler - who has recently been appointed as Fleetwood boss.

New manager Garry Monk will be looking to avoid a similar result, as they seek to erase memories of the 3-0 loss to QPR and get back on track.


It's the perfect opportunity for Leeds to give new boy Marcus Antonsson a start, to put pressure on Chris Wood after the New Zealand forward contributed nothing against QPR.

Fellow new signing Pablo Hernandez should also be given an opportunity in the fixture, with Kemar Roofe and Stuart Dallas rested.

This is a chance for Hadi Sacko and Jordan Botaka to show what they can do, with the latter in particular having much to prove.

Ronaldo Vieira should also be rested after making his first competitive start for the Whites, and Luke Murphy should come in.

A temptation may be to drop Rob Green and Sol Bamba after a poor goalkeeping and defensive display, but what they need is more time playing together to build familiarity, while the shot stopper in particular will want to put his error behind him.
