Leeds United will return to action this weekend when they take on Reading at home in the Championship.

The West Yorkshire outfit will head into the match at Elland Road with confidence and as favourites despite their recent results.

The Whites have lost their last two Championship games - 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday and 3-1 to Cardiff City, both away from home.

Leeds fans, though, will expect the team to bounce back with victory over Reading at home.

Ahead of the match, Leeds head coach Thomas Christiansen has given a very positive update.

Christiansen has said that only striker Caleb Ekuban will miss the encounter against the Royals, stating that he now has a headache regarding player selection.

“Only one player is out, Caleb,” Christiansen told Radio Yorkshire. “Everyone is okay, yes.”

When asked if he has a headache, Christiansen said: “A big one”.

Given the quality of players that Leeds have, it must be hard for Christiansen to pick his starting lineup.

However, this is a very ‘positive’ problem, as one suspects that the Leeds head coach would rather have everyone fit and raring to go than players in the medic’s room.
