Leeds United

Last updated: Sat 13 April 2019 19:53
In Brief

Lilywhites climb back into the top two with a midweek win at Preston North End; Jamal Blackman and Barry Douglas sidelined.

Looking Back

Leeds United returned to winning ways after beating ten-man Preston North End 2-0 at Deepdale in midweek.

They have now won four and lost two of their last half-a-dozen league matches and climb back into second place in the table.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa named an unchanged starting line-up with Kiko Casilla keeping his place between the sticks.

Pablo Hernandez kept his place in the side after recovering from a knock.

Kemar Roofe came off the bench again as he recovers from a recent knee injury.

Jordan Stevens was preferred to Jack Clarke on the bench.

Looking Ahead

Bielsa has no new injury concerns and is unlikely to make any changes.

Jamal Blackman and Barry Douglas aren't expected to play again this season with long-term knee injuries.

Points of Interest

The two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw when they last met at Hillsborough in September.

Sheffield Wednesday

Last updated: Sat 13 April 2019 19:53
In Brief

Owls keep their play-off hopes alive with a midweek home win over Nottingham Forest; Sam Hutchinson available; Dominic Iorfa and Barry Bannan doubtful.

Looking Back

Sheffield Wednesday kept their play-off hopes alive with a 3-0 midweek win over Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough.

They have lost just one of their last 14 league matches and are four points adrift of the play-off places.

Manager Steve Bruce made four changes to his starting line-up in midweek.

Morgan Fox, Joey Pelupessy, Marco Matias and Lucas Joao were handed recalls to the side.

Gary Hooper dropped to the bench whilst Dominic Iorfa, Barry Bannan and Sam Hutchinson missed out through injury and illness.

Loanee Achraf Lazaar returned to the bench after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Looking Ahead

Sam Hutchinson (illness) is back in contention whilst Bruce will check on the fitness of Dominic Iorfa (thigh) and Barry Bannan (hamstring).

The game comes too soon for Josh Onomah (dislocated elbow), Kieran Lee (long-term knee injury) and Rolando Aarons (twisted ankle).

Points of Interest

The two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw when they last met at Hillsborough in September.
