LEEDS United supporters and players will pay heartfelt tribute to late club legend Bobby Collins at Saturday’s home match against Leicester City.

A minute’s applause will be held before kick-off to celebrate the life and career of Bobby, who died on Monday aged 82.

Members of the Scotsman’s family and a number of his former team-mates will join in the applause from the pitch at Elland Road. United’s players will also wear black armbands and a tribute video will be shown on the ground’s big screen.

Memories of the Leeds hero will feature in the matchday programme as well.

Bobby is acknowledged as United’s on-pitch driving force during the early years of their rise to greatness under manager Don Revie. He captained Leeds in their first FA Cup final in 1965.
