Leeds United

Last updated: Sat 12 January 2019 10:36
In Brief

Leeds remain top but have now lost last three games. Barry Douglas, Patrick Bamford, Stuart Dallas, Jamal Blackman and Gaetano Berardi injured. Kalvin Phillips suspended. Liam Cooper and Pablo Hernandez doubtful.

Looking Back

Remain top of the table but have lost their way of late with defeats in each of their last three matches.

Beaten at QPR 2-1 in the FA Cup last week and played a fairly experimental line-up on that game.

Conor Shaughnessy, the defender, has gone out on loan to Hearts. Lewis Baker has also seen his loan from Chelsea ended.

Looking Ahead

Kalvin Phillips serves the second of a three-match suspension.

Barry Douglas missed out last week and set to miss out again.

Patrick Bamford, Stuart Dallas, Jamal Blackman and Gaetano Berardi all remain sidelined.

Liam Cooper is set to return while Pablo Hernandez is rated as a doubt.

Points of Interest

Have eight wins, three draws and two defeats on home soil this season.

Derby County

Last updated: Sat 12 January 2019 10:36
In Brief

Derby in hard fought Southampton cup draw. Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett and Marcus Olsson injured. Harry Wilson has a chance of returning. Scott Malone and Joe Ledley doubtful.

Looking Back

Tremendous fight to come back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at home to Southampton in FA Cup on Saturday.

Are now three games unbeaten but know they are under pressure to push on now.

Midfielder George Thorne, who has not played this season, has gone out on loan to Luton.

Looking Ahead

Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett and Marcus Olsson all remain sidelined due to injury.

Scott Malone and Joe Ledley are still doubtful but no new concerns have been reported.

Harry Wilson has a chance of returning to the side following injury.

Points of Interest

Have six wins, two draws and five defeats away from home this term. Hammered 4-1 at home by Leeds earlier in season.
