Southampton travel to Elland Road on the back of a decent run and will be hoping to leave with a point or three.

Leeds will have a new manager, and one with a good record for gaining promotion from this league. Neil Warnock will be having his first match at home since taking over and his players will be trying their hardest to impress.

Vital Quotes:

Former Portsmouth striker Danny Webber has been reunited with old boss Neil Warnock at Elland Road this week, with the pair having previously worked together at Sheffield United.

  • I am going for a hard fought draw as well. Think that the Leeds lot will be up for this with the new man at the helm.

  • Another massive game! Warnock’s first home game could have an impact – but we always try and attack and win the game, so this could be a thriller. Going for a draw, too.
