Leeds United

Last updated: Thu 16 May 2019 07:57
In Brief

Leeds have slender advantage. Pontus Jansson major doubt and new blows with Kemar Roofe and Adam Forshaw both out. Tyler Roberts, Leif Davis, Ezgjan Alioski, Jamal Blackman and Barry Douglas injured. Patrick Bamford back from ban.

Looking Back

Have a first leg advantage as they won 1-0 at Derby on Saturday thanks to Kemar Roofe's goal.

That ended a run of a draw and three defeats in their last four games.

Looking Ahead

Have a real injury crisis at just the wrong time and will do well to battle through this game. Kemar Roofe was injured on Saturday and is out along with Adam Forshaw.

Tyler Roberts, Leif Davis, Ezgjan Alioski, Jamal Blackman and Barry Douglas all remain out while Pontus Jansson is again a major doubt.

Patrick Bamford will start after suspension, while Jamie Shackleton is likely to replace Roofe.

Points of Interest

Have 14 wins, four draws and five defeats on home soil this season.

Derby County

In Brief

Poor attacking display on Saturday. Ashley Cole, Craig Bryson, Craig Forsyth, Curtis Davies and Marcus Olsson all remain out. Andy King and Martyn Waghorn doubtful.

Looking Back

Poor performance on Saturday saw them lose 1-0 at home in the first leg, failing to convince in front of their own fans.

Main issue was poor form in front of goal with not a single shot on target in that game.

Looking Ahead

Similar injury news with Ashley Cole, Craig Bryson, Craig Forsyth, Curtis Davies and Marcus Olsson all still out.

Andy King and Martyn Waghorn both remain huge doubts.

Frank Lampard must decide whether to make changes and may consider the likes of youngster Mason Bennett just to try something different.

Points of Interest

Have seven wins, seven draws and nine defeats on the road this season.
