Daniel Farke: We want to go there and be successful

Manager looks ahead to Hull City test.

Leeds United face Hull City away from home on Wednesday evening, in their latest Sky Bet Championship encounter.

The Whites travel east in this Yorkshire derby, looking to extend their four-game unbeaten run, whilst building upon back-to-back away wins in the league. 

Speaking ahead of the match, Daniel Farke gave his thoughts on the upcoming opposition.

“I think it will be a different game in comparison to Millwall,” the manager explained. 

“Hull is a different side from how they [Millwall] play. I rate the work of Liam Rosenior there, I like his thoughts on football and management.

"It’s a possession side who asks questions, especially with their quality in possession. 

“Against the ball we have to be unbelievably strong, but we have to make sure our quality with the ball and in possession still shines.  

“It’s a tough place again like each and every Championship game. We have to be ready again, we want to go there and be successful as well.”

With a period of three matches in six days, the manager was asked about the fitness of his side, and whether he would rotate the squad. 

He said: “Junior Firpo is still training individually, we hope he can return to team training as soon as possible. 

“It’s good news on Patrick Bamford, he joined us yesterday for the first time back in team training.

“The games this week are coming too soon for him after he was out for eight weeks, but it’s good news and a major boost for us.

“We’ve got a busy week with three games in six days, but I am not a friend of rotating too much as it breaks the rhythm. 

“I am always thinking about changing one, two or three positions, I think this is a healthy number, but we will definitely not change all 11.”
