Leeds United vs Barnsley Preview 15:00

Leeds United welcome Barnsley to Elland Road tomorrow for this Sky Bet Championship clash.


This will be the first time both teams have been in action since the controversial undercover sting by The Telegraph. Leeds owner Massimo Cellino and former Barnsley assistant manager Tommy Wright were both secretly filmed by Telegraph reporters posing as business men apparently helping them to bypass third party rules in English football.

Both have denied the evidence with Leeds calling it a non-story in an official club statement on the matter.

Leeds currently sit 14th in the table after Bristol City brought their four match undefeated run to an end on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win.

Barnsley have slipped out of the play-offs to 10th place after two defeats in their last three games, meaning both teams will see this match as an opportunity to get back to winning ways and climb back up the table.

Leeds United captain Liam Bridcutt suffered a further injury setback and will be out for around two months with a broken foot. Ronaldo Vieira is expected to be fit following a knee injury as is Swedish centre back Pontus Jansson following a hamstring injury.

Former Whites defender Aidy White will be assessed before the game for Barnsley. Saidy Janko and Ryan Williams are still unavailable.

KO: Elland Road, 3pm.
