Preview: Guiseley AFC vs Leeds United

First pre-season friendly for the Whites.

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United are back in action on Tuesday evening, as they travel to face Guiseley AFC (7:30pm).

The Whites will be playing their first pre-season friendly ahead of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign, and it will see the return of supporters to the West Yorkshire fixture. 

Guiseley have had five pre-season clashes so far, seeing plenty of goals scored in their matches during that time. They began with a resounding 7-0 win away at Ilkley Town, before following that up with a 3-0 win over Yorkshire Amateur, also away from home.

The Lions then suffered defeat at the hands of Premier League side Everton, with their Under-23s outfit winning 4-1. A few days later, a West Yorkshire derby with Bradford City was a close and entertaining affair, with the League Two side coming out on top as 2-1 winners. A 2-0 loss at Gainsborough Trinity then took place over the weekend. 

Having previously scored against the Whites when the two teams last met in 2019, Kaine Felix will be player to keep an eye on. The forward has been in goalscoring form during pre-season and will be looking to continue in the same way on Tuesday evening.
