Leeds United are looking to bounce back from their 2-0 home loss to Newcastle United this weekend when they visit bottom side Rotherham United.

Neil Redfearn has managed both clubs within the past 18 months, and has told Radio Yorkshire the Leeds XI he would pick for the match.

This is the starting XI Redfearn says he would pick, speaking on Wednesday night's (23/11) Yorkshire Football Show at 6pm.

Rob Green, Luke Ayling, Kyle Bartley, Liam Cooper, Charlie Taylor; Kalvin Phillips, Eunan O'Kane, Stuart Dallas, Kemar Roofe, Hadi Sacko, Chris Wood.

One of the five changes is enforced, with Pontus Jansson suspended and Liam Cooper stepping in.

The two players dropped are Ronaldo Vieira, Souleymane Doukara, with Redfearn backing goalkeeper Rob Green despite his error.

Explaining his selections, Redfearn said: "I'd go back to Phillip and O'Kane in midfield, they were pivotal in Leeds' run of form.

"I'd go with Sacko on the right, Doukara had a good run but it's time for the young lad to come back.

"Dallas on the left, and I'd move Roofe behind wood up front. He'll track back do the donkey work."

Leeds are expected to be without Pablo Hernandez once again through injury, with the Spaniard also missing the Newcastle game.

Liam Bridcutt remains injured, while Marcus Antonsson has a strong case to start after bagging an impressive hat-trick for the under-23s this week.

Leeds are in seventh place in the Championship and anything other than a win will be considered a disappointing result.
