Leeds United boss Paul Heckingbottom has made one change to the starting XI for Tuesday evening's trip to Fulham.

Playmaker Samuel Saiz will begin the match in place of Pierre-Michel Lasogga as the Whites boss looks to have reverted back to his familiar 4-2-3-1 formation.

The German started in Good Friday's 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road in a 4-4-2 formation, but with the Spaniard returning to training in recent days after a hamstring issue Saiz has forced his way back into the starting line-up once again.

The Whites travel to high-flying Fulham with the hosts on a 17 game unbeaten run in the Championship which is a club record.

Leeds line-up: Peacock-Farrell, Dallas, Jansson, Pennington, Berardi, Vieira, O'Kane, Alioski, Hernandez, Saiz, Ekuban.

Subs: Lonergan, Anita, Pearce, Phillips, Cibicki, Lasogga, Grot.

Fulham line-up: Bettinelli, Fredericks, Ream, Odoi, Targett, McDonald, Cairney, Johansen, Sessegnon, Ayite, Mitrovic

Subs: Button, Kalas, Christie, Norwood, Piazon, Kebano, Kamara
