The Robins trail Leeds by just a single point in the Championship this season, but come into this one firm underdogs after Leeds bounced back with a win over Queens Park Rangers in midweek.

Pearson’s side have won two and lost two of their last four, seeing off Plymouth Argyle by four goals to one, and Rotherham United away from home just three days ago.

Welcome to Elland Road

Good morning, it’s the final game before October’s international break and Leeds are looking to make it three consecutive home wins in the Championship today.

Watford and QPR have been seen off on home turf in recent weeks, but Bristol City - who trail United by just a single point - will be a different proposition altogether on paper.

Updates here. Team news from 2pm. Kick-off at 3.
