Leeds Utd play host to Reading who have had a good run of results in recent times at Elland Road. Last term they ran out 4-2 winners in Leeds Utd's own back garden.
However both Leeds and Reading are a changed side over the summer months and the tide may be turning for Leeds to record their first home victory over Reading since 2004/05 season.
Leeds will want an instant return to winning ways after a limp display and defeat away to Brentford. Reading will be looking to gain their first set of away points since August.
Darko Milanic has no new injury or suspensions to concern his selection. Berardi sits out his final game of his two game ban but on a more positive not Casper Sloth will be knocking on the mangers door for a place in the starting line up. Milanic has hinted that he will be changing a few positions in his starting XI as he engaged that he wanted to inject more tempo and energy into a Leeds side that looked shell shocked on Saturday.
Reading have an injury concern with Taylor looking a doubt after limping off against Wolves. However Robson-Kanu could be his replacement after being rested at the weekend.
Leeds have home advantage but the result could all but hang on the display of Leeds stopper Silvestri. The keeper has been in fine form all season and looks likely to be the difference. However saying that the home fans could yet get to see the Brazilian Adryan getting his debut in a Leeds shirt and maybe a goal to cap it all off? Leeds know how to win a game but to keep up the consistency is another ball game all together. Lets hope Milanic knows how to mix up the right ingredients.
Prediction: Leeds Utd 1-0 Reading
