Leeds United are back at Elland Road on Saturday lunchtime (12:30pm), taking on local rivals Huddersfield Town.

The Whites head into the West Yorkshire derby at home, having played their previous two matches away from home against Norwich City and Stoke City.

Daniel Farke’s side have won their last three consecutive matches on home turf, coming against Watford, Queens Park Rangers, and most recently before the international break, Stoke City.

Joel Piroe scored the winner against the Robins with a second half strike from outside the box and the forward leads the club’s goalscoring charts so far this season, having netted five times.

Darren Moore is in charge of today’s visitors. The manager was appointed into the role in September and will bring his new side to Elland Road with a plan to bounce back from a heavy midweek defeat at home to Cardiff.

Town are in 21st place at the moment, just one place above the relegation zone, but they do have a five point gap to fellow Yorkshire outfit, Rotherham United.

In what is an ever-changing and constantly tight league, a win for Moore’s side on Saturday could move them as high as 14th, potentially bringing them within three points of a play-off place depending on results elsewhere.

Farke’s side are looking to keep their place at the right end of the table. Currently in third spot, the Whites can’t gain a position with three points this weekend, but could close the gap to both Ipswich Town and Leicester City, depending on their results.
