Preview: Swansea City v Leeds United

We look at Sunday's clash.

Leeds United make the long trip to Wales to take on Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship on Sunday.  The Whites head to the Liberty Stadium on the back of a fine midweek win against Stoke City on Thursday, with the Potters defeated 5-0 at Elland Road.  Like Leeds, Swansea are one of the form teams in the division following the restart of the league.  They are currently fighting for a Play-Off spot, sitting just one point outside of the top six.
