Leeds United v Stoke City
Thursday 9th July at 5.00pm | Elland Road
Stoke are the visitors to Elland Road on Thursday for an early evening kick off against top of the table Leeds Utd. Stoke City boss Michael O’Neill will take heart from their 4-0 home win against Barnsley courtesy of goals from Sam Vokes, Tom Ince and a brace from Tyrese Campbell which have lifted the Potters to 18th in the Championship, two points and four places from the drop zone. That was their first win at the fourth attempt since the season re-started, and one their best performances of the season.
Leeds have collected seven points from an available twelve since the season restarted. They are currently second place in the table, two points behind West Brom following their victory against Derby last night. Brentford are three points back in third place Brentford who have a far better goal difference then the Whites. Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that both Stuart Dallas and Helder Costa will be fit to play against Stoke City. The duo missed the last game through injury. Many fans believe this would be unfair on Douglas and Alioski who both played well during their 3-1 win at Ewood Park last weekend.
