Leeds and Brentford meet at Elland Road for the first time since March 2010 in a match which sees two teams close together in the form table but 14 places apart in the Championship go head to head.
Neil Redfearn's side will be able to give a debut to Edgar Cani who signed on loan from Catania for the remainder of the season; Cani is likely to replace Steve Morison in The Whites starting 11. Lewis Cook is likely to remain in the Leeds starting 11 despite picking up a knock in last weeks victory against Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield at The Galpharm Stadium.
Brentford have no new injury worries as Scott Hogan, Alan McCormack, Lewis Macleod and Alan Judge remain the only sidelined players for Mark Warburton's men. If Warburton is to make any changes to his starting 11, Tony Craig will most likely replace Harlee Dean in defence but if not then Jonathan Douglas will captain The Bees against his former club. Brentford will be looking to make it a third straight away victory in this one: The Bees not losing away since they played Wolverhampton at the end of 2014.
Overall, Brentford will be the favourites in this match and will be looking to hit form again following last weeks defeat to Middlesbrough but Leeds will prove a tough opponent for Brentford as Neil Redfearn's team have not lost since the end of December in the league.
Predicted Line Ups:
Leeds- Silvestri, Wotton, Bamba, Cooper, Byram, Taylor, Cook, Murphy, Mowatt, Sharp, Cani
Brentford- Button, Bidwell, Craig, Tarkowski, Odubajo, Douglas, Diagouraga, Pritchard, Jota, Dallas, Gray
