Pierre-Michel Lasogga of Leeds United celebrates after scoring  during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Millwall at Elland Road on January 20, 2018 in Leeds, England.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga could be in line for just 12th Championship start of the season for Leeds United on Tuesday night as Thomas Christiansen's side face Hull City - and Leeds fans have urged their manager to start the target man.

Leeds travel to the KCOM Stadium to face Nigel Adkins' struggling side, as they look to put a dismal run of four losses and a draw that has seen the Yorkshire giants slip into the tenth place and knocked out of the FA Cup.

The Whites will be without a whole host of first-team stars to suspension. Samu Saiz still has four of his six-game ban to serve, while Eunan O'Kane, Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper are to remain on the sidelines.

It is likely to see Everton loanee Matthew Pennington partner Cooper, while teenager Ronaldo Vieira could go alongside new signing Adam Forshaw in the middle of the park.

But Leeds fans are desperate to see Lasogga start against Hull after the German scored a brace during the last-gasp 4-3 defeat to Millwall last time out, with supporters hoping the target man has returned to form.

One fan believes Leeds will get the best out of 26-year-old Lasogga if Christiansen's side "play to his strengths".
