Leeds face Millwall on Saturday.
Leeds United’s visit to Millwall this weekend has been overshadowed by Neil Harris’ shock departure as manager of the home side.
Millwall confirmed last night that Harris had stepped down with immediate effect, without any further explanation given.

Just hours earlier Harris had led Millwall to a 1-1 draw at Luton and spoken positively about his side’s desire to take the game to Leeds this weekend at The Den.
Harris was a popular figure at Millwall in his playing days and had been in charge of the club for the past four years.
His departure puts Millwall at an even bigger disadvantage this weekend against promotion chasers Leeds.
Harris and Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa clashed last season and the former was critical of the Whites during the Spygate saga.
Leeds fans are not sad to see the back of him, that is for sure.
Here is a look at the reaction on Twitter…
Neil Harris gone at Millwall. Bit of a bonus that for us on Saturday as he hates Leeds more than most #Lufc— LufcSS (@LufcAlaw) October 3, 2019
Neil Harris resigning 2 days before their World Cup final in a game they always show up is absolutely bizarre #lufc— ⚽️ Kevin Power ⚽️ (@kevinpower93) October 3, 2019
