There are plenty of threats in the Barnsley team for Leeds United to think about.

Leeds United travel to Oakwell for a West Yorkshire derby against Barnsley Saturday lunchtime. 

Thomas Christiansen's side will be looking to bounce back from their 4-1 defeat at Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers in mid-week. A win could see Leeds go sixth if other results go their way, while Barnsley can move up to 13th. 

Here are three players Leeds need to keep a close eye on if they're to come away with three points:

Tom Bradshaw

Tom Bradshaw is facing a race to be fit for the game. The striker suffered a car accident on Wednesday, but Paul Heckingbottom is hoping his top scorer will be OK.  

Bradshaw himself took to Twitter to tell fans he's hoping to feature in the derby. He's scored eight goals in all competitions for Barnsley this season and is enjoying his role as leading marksman. The former Walsall man also has two caps for Wales.  

Harvey Barnes

Leicester City loanee Harvey Barnes has impressed at Oakwell so far. The winger has scored five goals this season, including three in his last five outings.

The 19-year-old is a man in-form and has received plenty of praise for his performances and attitude from boss Heckingbottom. Barnes spent last season on loan at MK Dons where he scored six goals in League One. 

Brad Potts

Brad Potts was influential for Blackpool in helping them to promotion from League Two last season with 13 goals, including one in the Play-off final. The 23-year-old has improved gradually after a bit of a slow start, but he's now a regular in the Barnsley side and is starting to show his quality. He's scored two goals so far this season and has only missed two Championship games.
