Leeds can edge towards the EFL Championship title with victory over Yorkshire rivals Barnsley at Elland Road on Thursday. It's top versus bottom and Leeds can take another step on the road back to the Premier League with a comfortable home win.

Leeds Form


Leeds opened up a three-point gap at the top of the table after beating Swansea City 1-0 courtesy of Pable Hernandez's late strike. 

That came after West Brom dropped points, but manager Marcelo Bielsa knows there is still work to do if his side are to be crowned champions.

The victory over Swansea was a third straight win for Leeds and continued a run of just one defeat in the last 12 matches in the Championship.

Leeds Team News


Adam Forshaw remains the only absentee for Leeds.

Barnsley Form


After restarting the season with two wins and a draw to move out of the relegation zone, Barnsley find themselves back at the bottom of the table. 

Gerhard Struber's side were unable to break down 10-man Wigan  at home on the weekend and had to settle for a 0-0 draw.

It is back-to-back draws for Barnsley and only one defeat in the last six matches since the Championship got back underway. In an incredibly tight bottom six separated by just four points, Barnsley realistically need at least two wins from the last three games.

Barnsley will still be without Romal Palmer but otherwise have a full squad to choose from.
