Championship

Bamford and Phillips will start against Reading

Bamford and Phillips will start against Reading

Leeds United fans will be hoping that their side can pile the pressure on Norwich City ahead of their match with Hull City tomorrow night, with pole position up for grabs. 

Leeds United head to the Madejski in fine form as they’ve managed to win their last two Championship fixtures, which has put them in a promising position in the race for automatic promotion. Although, Reading are enjoying an impressive spell of their own and will be looking to secure vital points to aid their survival bid.

What’s the news?

Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed he will name an unchanged starting line-up for the fifth successive match

The Leeds boss wasn’t 100% sure that Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford would be fit for today’s clash, so it will come as a huge boost that both men are able to start.

Although, Jack Clarke, Kemar Roofe and Adam Forshaw remain out.

The Verdict:

Hearing that Bamford and Phillips are fit to start today will offer an extra boost for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as they travel to the Madejski Stadium. Indeed, the forward’s goals have been crucial in recent times and they’ll be relying on him to deliver the goods once again today, and Phillips’ defensive qualities will be called into action to stop Nelson Oliveira who has been a constant threat for the Royals in recent times.

Leeds have the chance to climb back into pole position in the Championship, so supporters could be in for a very enjoyable night if things go their way.

Leeds United fans, you must be over the moon with Bamford and Phillips’ immediate recovery?
