This is a Yorkshire derby and the visitors cannot expect any favours from their near neighbours. Having said that, Town are not in the best of shape, are without a win in three and two key players in Frank Sinclair and Phil Jevons. For Leeds United this is a massive week, tomorrow they are expected to learn the ruling regarding their 15 point deduction appeal. They currently lie 12 points behind Carlisle, who hold second spot, which guarantees automatic promotion, with this game in hand. Therefore, they could close to nine with a win, my understanding is ,that they are very confident of getting at least 5 points back, which would reduce the deficit to just four. With a superior goal difference and their final three fixtures against teams in the bottom 8, this would give them a live chance of promotion, without suffering the play-off lottery. This scenario would put a lot of pressure on Carlisle, who entertain Southend, who are a team in great form, at the weekend. I expect a very motivated Leeds side to do their part this evening.

6.5 points Leeds United -1/2 ball asian line 2.20.

Good Luck.
