Leeds United look to continue a purple patch with a seventh successive Championship win as they travel to Southampton this weekend.

Leeds United can go seven league games unbeaten as they square up against Russell Martin's Southampton side this weekend.

The Whites' run of form is very much the opposite of recent results for the Saints, who have lost all of their last four Championship fixtures having gone unbeaten in their first four.

Both clubs had been touted as early promotion candidates after falling down from the Premier League last season but there is already significant ground to make up on league leaders Leicester City.

Speaking ahead of the game Leeds United boss Daniel Farke said: “First of all we know that we are in good shape and good moments of the season.

“We’re six games unbeaten, four clean sheets in a row, pretty impressive performances and obviously a really good result in the last game and many points in the last games, we are happy at the moment. But we know that in this league you always have to be aware that the momentum can change and switch pretty quickly, so for that we always have to be on it.

“Southampton will be highly motivated to do exactly this - to use this home game against an opponent with a big reputation like we are, in order to win the momentum. They had a really, really good start to the season, it’s a really good side and then it’s the Championship and sometimes you have periods when it’s tricky.

“But, I’m 100 per cent sure that their class will shine at one moment and they will be highly motivated to find their way back in terms of results, because I think performance-wise they were not far away."

Leeds United team news

There's excitement around striker Patrick Bamford's return to training for Leeds United. The talisman could make his first league appearance of the season at Southampton, although manager Daniel Farke may choose to give the forward a little longer.

Wilfried Gnonto will miss out with injury alongside Junior Firpo and Djed Spence. The Whites do have a boost as Joe Rodon comes back from suspension having served his one-match ban against Watford.
