We analyse Saturday's clash.

Leeds United travel to Stoke City on Saturday, looking for back to back wins in the Sky Bet Championship.  Leeds completed a first league double of the campaign by defeating Derby County last week and will be hoping to do the same against Stoke, following the 3-1 opening day victory against the Potters.  Nathan Jones is the new man in charge at Stoke following the departure of Gary Rowett, but his first two games have ended in defeats.

Team news

The key battle

Jack Butland v Kemar Roofe

Leeds fans know all about goalkeeper Butland from his time on loan at the club.  He will be looking to prevent top scorer Roofe from adding to his 14 goal tally so far this season.
