Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Birmingham: Two changes from Evans

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Birmingham City will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 13th August 2016 at 14:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 5/4, Draw 9/4, Birmingham 15/8

Leeds United welcome Birmingham City to Elland Road on Saturday for their latest Championship clash.

The Whites had a poor start to the campaign as they crashed 3-0 away to Queens Park Rangers before overcoming Fleetwood Town on penalties in the League Cup earlier this week.

In contrast, Birmingham drew 0-0 with Cardiff City in their first league match before slipping out of the cup after an extra-time defeat to Oxford United.

As a result, both teams have reasons to put their disappointing form behind them and get a vital win on the board.

Leeds have made plenty of new signings this summer and it is up to manager Garry Monk to get the best out of them, putting his faith in a regular starting XI that can finally earn them promotion back to the top flight.

That is easier said than done, but three points on Saturday would be a step in the right direction.
