Kick-off: 12 noon

How to watch: Sky Sports or LUTV (LUTV free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, otherwise not available apart from in ‘dark market’ territories where a Live Video Match Pass costs £5).

The lowdown: One of two remaining trips to South Wales with Leeds resuming action against a side who have their own promotion hopes in sitting just two points of the play-offs under boss Neil Harris, so often a Whites nemesis at Millwall.

Opponent: Fulham (h)

Position: 3rd

When: Saturday, June 27

Kick-off: 3pm

How to watch: Sky Sports or LUTV (LUTV free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, otherwise not available apart from in ‘dark market’ territories where a Live Video Match Pass costs £5).

The lowdown: Your classic 'six pointer' and a promotion crunch clash with Fulham leading the chase of the division's top two in third but still seven points behind the table-topping Whites. A good game to win but must not lose against Scott Parker's side who beat Leeds 2-1 at Craven Cottage in December.

Opponent: Luton Town (h)

Position: 23rd

When: Tuesday, June 30

Kick-off: 7.45pm

How to watch: LUTV (free for season ticket holders or £10 for supporters in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and £5 for those who live outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland).

The lowdown: The first of four games against sides battling relegation but the second-bottom Hatters might well be revitalised by the recent appointment of Nathan Jones who took Luton from the bottom of League Two to the top of League One in his first spell in charge.

Opponent: Blackburn Rovers (a)

Position: 10th

When: Saturday, July 4

Kick-off: 3pm

How to watch: LUTV (free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, or £10 for supporters in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and £5 for those who live outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland).

The lowdown: Leeds were set to take 7,700 fans to Ewood Park for the initially planned Friday night fixture at Ewood Park which will instead be empty but Tony Mowbray's men have plenty to play for in sitting just three points off the play-offs.

Opponent: Stoke City (h)

Position: 17th

When: Thursday, July 9

Kick-off: 5pm

How to watch: Sky Sports or LUTV (LUTV free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, otherwise not available apart from in ‘dark market’ territories where a Live Video Match Pass costs £5).

The lowdown: An odd kick-off time - Thursday 5pm - against another side who have had a recent managerial change of sorts with boss Michael O'Neill now giving the under-performing Potters his full attention having previously combined the role with his position as manager of Northern Ireland. Stoke are still only three points above the dropzone.

Opponent: Swansea City (a)

Position: 11th

When: Sunday, July 12*

Kick-off: 3pm*

How to watch: LUTV (free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, or £10 for supporters in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and £5 for those who live outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland).

The lowdown: United's second Sunday trip to South Wales to this time face a side who began the season looking like contenders for automatic promotion though the Swans are still in the play-offs race in sitting only three points off the top six.

Opponent: Barnsley (h)

Position: 24th

When: Wednesday, July 15*

Kick-off: 7.45pm*

How to watch: LUTV (free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, or £10 for supporters in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and £5 for those who live outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland).

The lowdown: A Yorkshire derby against the division's bottom-placed side who are seven points from safety with just nine games left and who will likely arrive at Elland Road with some familiar faces on show in former Whites players Alex Mowatt, Aapo Halme and Clarke Oduor.

Opponent: Derby County (a)

Position: 12th

When: Saturday, July 18*

Kick-off: 3pm*

How to watch: LUTV (free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, or £10 for supporters in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and £5 for those who live outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland).

The lowdown: Wayne Rooney - and a repeat of last season's play-offs semi-final first leg in which a Kemar Roofe strike gave United a 1-0 victory though the less said about the second leg the better. Pay back time with the Rams bobbing about in mid-table at present.

Opponent: Charlton Athletic (h)

Position: 22nd

When: Wednesday, July 22*

Kick-off: TBC*

How to watch: LUTV (free for season ticket holders who have chosen the Club Bundle package as part of their season ticket rebate, or £10 for supporters in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and £5 for those who live outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland).

The lowdown: The season finale that should have been the Elland Road party in May against a side managed by former Whites favourite Lee Bowyer who desperately hopes United are promoted this term although his overriding concern is keeping the third-bottom Addicks in the division. Ideally, by July 22, Leeds are already up and Charlton are safe.
