Leeds United travel away from home on Wednesday evening, for their second successive away match in the Sky Bet Championship after returning from the international break.

The Whites head to the bet365 Stadium, to take on Stoke City in this 8pm kick-off which is being shown live on Sky Sports.

Daniel Farke’s side have won their last three in the league, which included a dramatic comeback victory away at Norwich City last time out.

After going two goals behind in the first half, the manager told his side to keep working hard in the second, and it brought the rewards. An own-goal, followed by a Crysencio Summerville double saw Leeds go into the lead with five minutes remaining, then hold onto the three points.

Stoke come into the match having also won last time out. A tough run of recent form was ended by Alex Neil’s side, with a battling victory at home to Sunderland over the weekend, thanks to goals from Ryan MMaee and Luke McNally.

The win was much needed and moved The Potters away from the bottom three in the table. In what is always a well-contested and close league, following the win over the weekend, Stoke are now just six points off a play-off place.

Leeds have now won four out of their last five games and the goals from different areas of the pitch have been pivotal to that. The Whites have seen 12 different scorers so far in the 2023/24 campaign, with Joel Piroe leading the way on five and Summerville just behind on four.

Showing that finding the net hasn’t been an issue for them either, Stoke can boast 13 separate scorers, with Andre Vidigal leading the way on five as well.
