Saturday 23rd September 3:00pm | Elland Road
Leeds face their third league match in six days, with the visit of Watford on Saturday afternoon.
The Whites are still searching for their first league victory of the season (at home), but hope they can stir up a hornet's nest by sending Valerien Ismael's men back to Hertfordshire empty handed. This will be far from easy, against a team who recently beat Birmingham City, the only Championship outfit to have defeated the Whites this season. Regardless, Leeds are a point, and five places better off than their opponents, and hope to extend that lead even further come tea-time on Saturday.
Leeds welcome Crysencio Summerville back into the starting line up, after being rested midweek (according to Daniel Farke's post match comments midweek), but with Wilfred Gnonto out for some time, Dan James will likely keep his place in the starting line up too.
Sam Byram may be recalled at the expense of Luke Ayling. The Leeds veteran has already played over 700 minutes of game time this season, and could be due a rest. As could Archie Gray. The 17yo been in fine form this term, but Farke will be conscious not to over-play him. With Ilia Gruev and Glen Kamara at his disposal, Farke has some tough decisions to make, both in midfield, and defence.
With Joe Roden suspended (for one game), following his red card at Hull, the gaffer needs to decide whether to go with youth or experience! Cooper obviously has the maturity, but after six weeks on the treatment table, looked a little rusty during his 30 minute cameo role midweek.
The other option would be Charlie Cresswell. He is the natural right-sided option, meaning Farke wouldn't need to move Pascal Struijk out of position; but the England U21 International has only started one league game this season (away at Birmingham City), and may also not be up to speed.
Stuart Dallas is back in training, but after an 18 month lay off, is still a long way off from a return to action. Junior Firpo may make the squad (albeit the bench) for the first time this season, after overcoming his latest knee injury.
Striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo could return to action for the Hornets, having featured off the bench against West Brom midweek in their 2-2 draw. Tom Ince and Matheus Martins are both likely to keep their spots on the wings after scoring. Defender Ryan Porteous is a doubt after being withdrawn in the second half of Wednesday's match with a knock.

By Billy Morris
It's Spring 1965, and young Alan Connolly is a man with a plan. Out of jail and out of Glasgow, leaving old wars behind and hoping that the voices in his head allow him to forget the past. New start, new city. Smart suit, the best scooter and the right connections. LS1 is swinging - Coffee bars and clubs,pills and protection rackets. And at Elland Road, Revie's United are chasing a league and cup double in their first season back in the top flight. It's the right place and the perfect time to build his empire and the only thing that can stop him is his own dangerous ambition and the dark memories that torment him.
