Have your say

LEEDS UNITED kick off the 2014-15 Championship campaign with an away trip to arch rivals Millwall at the New Den on August 9.

United’s first home game of the season is against Middlesbrough, who they hosted in their maiden league outing of 2011-12, when three players were dismissed. That takes place on August 16.

Three days later, United entertain Brighton and they see out August with a trip to Watford (August 23) and a home encounter with Bolton (August 30).

Leeds start September with a trip to St Andrews to face Birmingham City (September 13) and three days later, they have a midweek journey to Bournemouth.

They play host to West Yorkshire neighbours Huddersfield Town on September 20.

United kick off October with another home derby clash, against Sheffield Wednesday on October 4 and they make their first-ever visit to the New York Stadium to face more South Yorkshire opposition in Rotherham United on October 18.

Leeds hit the road to Norwich - and a potential reunion with former Elland Road players Jonny Howson, Bradley Johnson, Robert Snodgrass and Luciano Becchio - three days later on October 21.

United’s Christmas fixtures see them travel to Nottingham Forest on December 20 before playing host to Wigan on Boxing Day. They see out 2014 with another East Midlands excursion to Derby County.

Leeds start the new year in the Championship at Bolton (January 10) and visit Huddersfield Town on January 31 and Middlesbrough on February 21 - a month which also sees them tackle Brentford, Reading, Brighton and Watford.

Leeds’ Easter fixtures see them host Blackburn (April 4) and travel to Wolves two days later.

United’s last away game is a trip down the M1 to Sheffield Wednesday on April 25 and their final home assignment is against Rotherham on May 2, having faced the Millers previously in their final home game of the 2004-05 campaign.
