Welcome to the University of Loughborough stadium for today’s friendly clash.

We’ll have all the latest as we have it - including that all important team news.

United’s number nine leads out the Leeds squad at Loughborough University. He’s involved after being absent from the friendly against Blackburn on Wednesday night.

Checking out the pitch

Another strong line-up for the Whites this afternoon. Patrick Bamford is here, which is good news. Not the whole squad came out so no sign of Kalvin Phillips or Liam Cooper as yet.

We await team news in about 20 minutes.

Firpo spending time with the visiting players

Leeds United’s new signing Junior Firpo has spent the last 10 minutes chatting with his old Real Betis team-mates out on the pitch.

Nice to see. He did some pre-match interviews too. An interesting afternoon ahead for him, probably glad it is just a friendly.
