Daniel Farke’s side moved up to fifth place in the Championship table by signing off for the October internationals with Saturday’s 2-1 victory at home to Bristol City. Back to back away games will present themselves upon the return to action, starting with a visit to Farke’s former side Norwich City who sit just two points and two places below Leeds in seventh place.

Leeds, though, are expected to get the big boost of another victory by the bookmakers who have Farke’s side as clear favourites for the Carrow Road contest despite the challenge presented by the highflying Canaries.
