Preview: Leeds United v Hull City

We welcome 12th place Hull City to Elland Road tonight, as we look to build on the momentum of our derby day win over Huddersfield last Saturday.  

Going into the game we are unbeaten in nine, having won six in a row and whilst the odds look to be in our favour, this fixture has always proven tricky in the past. The last meeting between the two sides saw Hull walk away with the three points after a 2-0 victory at Elland Road. That day saw striker Jarrod Bowen in fine form, claiming both goals. He will be one to watch tonight as he looks to increase his goal tally.

Hull travel to Elland Road on the back of a 2-1 victory over Stoke City at the weekend. They may be mid table however their results this season show they are more than capable of causing an upset having secured victories over Preston and Sheffield Wednesday.

Marcelo Bielsa confirmed that Leeds will be without captain Liam Cooper who is still side-lined with a calf injury. Adam Forshaw, Jamie Shackleton and Tyler Roberts will all miss out as they continue to recover from ongoing injuries.

We are boosted by the return of midfielder Kalvin Philips following his one-match suspension and he is likely to return back to the starting XI.

Hull will be without forward Josh Magennis who is out with a hamstring injury.

Tuesday night lights await, we look to make it seven wins from seven and come the final whistle hopefully return back to the top of the Championship table.
