Leeds United take on Derby County at Elland Road this evening...

Leeds United starting line-up: Lonergan; Ayling, Jansson, Pennington; Dallas, O'Kane, Vieira, Alioski; Saiz, Roofe; Lasogga.

Leeds United substitutes: Wiedwald, Shaughnessy, Anita, Klich, Hernandez, Sacko, Grot.

Derby County starting line-up: Carson; Wisdom, Keogh, Davies, Forsyth; Huddlestone, Ledley; Lawrence, Winnall, Johnson; Martin.

Derby County substitutes: Mitchell, Baird, Pearce, Weimann, Vydra, Thorne, Thomas.

Leeds face a second home game in a matter of days tonight, as they host Derby County after losing 2-1 at home to Sheffield United on Friday night.

Thomas Christiansen's men have now lost five of their last seven Championship games, and need to find some consistency again having really slipped in recent weeks.

Andy Lonergan keeps his place in goal in place of Felix Wiedwald, and Christiansen appears to have gone for a back three of Luke Ayling, Pontus Jansson and Matthew Pennington.

Whilst unconfirmed, it seems that Stuart Dallas and Ezgjan Alioski will serve as the wing backs, with Eunan O'Kane and Ronaldo Vieira in the middle of the park, leaving Samu Saiz and Kemar Roofe to support lone striker Pierre-MIchel Lasogga.

Wiedwald is named on the bench alongside Conor Shaughnessy, Vurnon Anita, Mateusz Klich, Pablo Hernandez, Hadi Sacko and Jay-Roy Grot.

Meanwhile, opponents Derby head into the game having beaten Norwich City 2-1 at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon, which was their third Championship win in a row.

Gary Rowett's side are hitting top form, and the Rams have a tried-and-tested backline of goalkeeper Scott Carson and defenders Andre Wisdom, Richard Keogh, Curtis Davies and Craig Forsyth.

Tom Huddlestone partners Joe Ledley in midfield, whilst Tom Lawrence, Sam Winnall and ex-Leeds midfielder Bradley Johnson will support lone striker Chris Martin.

Andreas Weimann and Matej Vydra are both named on the bench, alongside Jonathan Mitchell, Chris Baird, Alex Pearce, George Thorne and Luke Thomas.
