Bielsa set to name same line-up as Leeds take on Bristol City

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is expected to name the same starting line-up for the home game against Bristol City.

Bielsa has no new injury or suspension problems following the midweek draw at Brentford and confirmed both goalkeeper Kiko Casilla and striker Patrick Bamford will start.

Casilla has made a series of mistakes in recent matches, his latest leading directly to Brentford’s opening goal on Tuesday night, while Bamford has scored just twice in his last eight league appearances.

Tyler Roberts (calf) remains sidelined and fellow midfielder Adam Forshaw’s season is over as he is to have surgery in the United States to help resolve a long-term hip problem.

Bristol City have no new injury concerns following their midweek home win against Derby.

Recent signings Nahki Wells, Marcus Henriksen and Filip Benkovic all made their first starts for the club.

All three will be hoping to retain their places, with Wells and Benkovic both scoring and Henriksen producing a man-of-the-match performance.

Goalkeeper Tomas Kalas is closing in on his return following a hamstring injury, but striker but Marley Watkins (calf) is still unavailable.
