Jonathan Douglas- Returns to Elland Road; 10 goals in 148 appearances for Leeds: at the club for 4 years

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

You know more about the Leeds squad than most Leeds fans!

Anyways I'm gonna be optimistic and say a Leeds win, 1-0 or 2-1

EDIT: Never predicting a match again...

Important game for us to win, with the fixtures we have around it. Keeps us in touch with the top teams, and we look pretty set for the play offs now.

A win at home to Watford on Tuesday would be huge, we will then have played most of the top teams twice, and can hopefully put a good run together till the end of the season

Apparently Brentford were the better team but we were mugged off by the ref on numerous occasions. At least Millwall lost.

That was a 1-0 hammering. We weren't great in the first half but could/should have gone in 2-0 up after missing a couple of one on ones. The second half we totally dominated and it was a thoroughly deserved win in the end.

Not quite sure how we only scored one goal. We miss so many chances in matches it is ridiculous. Also, I've seen a few Leeds fans saying there was handball in the buildup to our goal but you can clearly see here it hit Toral in the chest.
