Hull City v Leeds United recap: Analysis from MKM Stadium, injury blow
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Whites lined up for Sunday’s return to Championship action at Millwall sat in just 17th place but an impressive 3-0 victory at The Den saw Farke’s side soar into the division’s top ten for the first time this season.
The win followed a disappointing goalless draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday in the final game before the international break which itself arrived on the back of a fine 4-3 success at Ipswich Town.
There were six Championship games on Tuesday evening, after which Leeds sit in 12th place in the table, on nine points and two points adrift of the play-offs places. Victory at sixth-placed Hull could now take the Whites as high as fifth.
Here, upon landing at Hull’s MKM Stadium, we will bring you all of the pre-match build-up followed by confirmed line-ups and then match updates and analysis before post-game reaction. The 7.45pm kick-off is not being televised.
Hull City v Leeds United recap
How we think Leeds will line up
Chucking it down
In Hull, grey skies and generally a bit grim but forecast to clear up for this evening. Even so, a jacket would be a good idea. Not that cold though.
Landed - good evening from Hull City
The forecast was actually right. But what will the forecast for Leeds United be tonight at the MKM Stadium as they seek WWW away from home? A win tonight could put Leeds fifth. Team news to come at 6.45pm and arrivals usually from around 6.15pm. Must be a huge temptation for Farke to go unchanged. All the news here as we get it.
