Preview: Leeds United v Luton Town

Preview: Leeds United v Luton Town

We look at Tuesday's fixture.

Leeds United return to Elland Road on Tuesday (7:45pm), for the second time in just a few days, welcoming Luton Town.  The Whites are looking for back-to-back Sky Bet Championship wins, following an impressive 3-0 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Fulham on Saturday.  Doing so will be no easy feat though.  Nathan Jones returned to the Hatters as manager over the lockdown period and has overseen them collect four points from their last two matches against Preston North End and Swansea City as they bid to avoid relegation.  Leeds currently sit at the top of the table with an eight point advantage over Brentford in third place and will be hoping to extend that lead on Tuesday.
