Leeds team news: Forshaw could start as Bielsa may make changes

Leeds United will be looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season when they meet Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

The Whites were beaten by Birmingham City to hand Marcelo Bielsa his first loss in the competition and the Argentine will be looking to see a reaction from his players ahead of the derby.

Hillsborough has not been kind to Leeds recently, with the Elland Road outfit having suffered a 3-0 defeat the last time the two sides met.

However, Bielsa has got his team playing with confidence and will want them to take the game to the hosts on Friday night.

And, according to the club’s official website, he could be prepared to make changes to his starting XI for the match against the Owls.

Adam Forshaw could be handed his first start under Bielsa after he recovered from a foot injury that required surgery.

However, the match has come too early for the likes of Gaetano Berardi, Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez, who have all been closing in on a return.

The Verdict:

Leeds will want to put the defeat to Birmingham City quickly behind them and a win against Sheffield Wednesday would be the perfect way.

The Elland Road outfit have started the Championship campaign in blistering pace and will be pleased to be able to call upon Forshaw.

Bielsa will be wary that the Owls are currently enjoying their own run of form with impressive performances and will be looking for his side to not just equal them on the pitch, but to be better than them in front of their own fans.
