Leeds United’s penultimate home game of the regular Championship season sees Blackburn Rovers in town.

Leeds United will be eyeing a quick return to winning ways when they welcome Blackburn Rovers to Elland Road on Saturday. Daniel Farke’s side were left disappointed in midweek after drawing 0-0 and failing to score at home for the first time since September.

Points dropped by both Leicester City and Ipswich Town offered some relief but with just four games remaining of the regular season, Leeds need to rediscover their form quickly. Saturday’s visitors remain in a relegation battle and so will be fighting for their lives and looking for a response to Wednesday’s 5-0 drubbing at Bristol City.

Leeds look to have come through Tuesday’s Championship clash with no major issues, with Ethan Ampadu playing the full 90 minutes despite being ill during the week. Ilia Gruev, Wilfried Gnonto and Connor Roberts have all been out recently but got more minutes under their belt. Pascal Struijk remains out for the season.

The visitors will be without Semir Telalovic and Zak Gilsenan, who both missed Wednesday’s defeat at Bristol City and are expected to miss Saturday’s trip to Elland Road. Scott Wharton was forced off with a back injury and is a doubt.
