Leeds United will be looking to maintain their good run of form in the Championship when they take on Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road this afternoon.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will head into the match against Blackburn on the back of a 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Elland Road in the Championship.

The West Yorkshire outfit are third in the league table at the moment with 28 points from 15 matches, level on points with second-placed Preston North End and two points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion.

 

Meanwhile, Blackburn currently find themselves as low as 16th in the standings with 18 points from 15 matches, six points above the bottom three.

This is how Leeds and Blackburn will line up at Elland Road for their Championship game this afternoon:

Meanwhile, Leeds midfielder Matuesz Klich has spoken highly of his teammate Tyler Roberts, and believes that the 20-year-old - who can operate as a striker, winger or attacking midfielder - will be an important player in the team’s quest to finish in the top two of the Championship table this season.

Klich told LUTV: “Tyler has had his problems with injuries, but I’m really enjoying playing alongside him because he is a great footballer.

“If he stays fit for the rest of the season, he is going to be a big player for us. He gives me more freedom and space because the opposition are focusing on him, because he is a better dribbler. It means I can attack from behind and time my runs, so I enjoy playing with him.”
