Swansea City 0-4 Leeds United highlights: Gnonto double demolishes Swans as Bamford drops out of warm-up

Leeds United visit South Wales this evening as their month-long tour of the United Kingdom continues with a Championship meeting against Swansea City up next.

Leeds boss Daniel Farke has near-enough a full strength squad to pick from in midweek but is without Sam Byram who sustained a muscle injury during the 3-0 win over Rotherham United last Saturday.

Jamie Shackleton has remained with his partner after the birth of his first child and is also understood to be unavailable for tonight's game, barring a late U-turn to be with the squad.

Daniel James, however, is back amongst those available to Farke, making a return to the Swansea.com Stadium. James represented the Swans between 2016 and 2019 before sealing a move to Manchester United. He joins on-loan pair Joe Rodon and Connor Roberts and Joel Piroe in returning to their old stomping ground this Tuesday night.

Luke Williams' side are 16th in the Championship table with nine wins and nine draws from their 31 league outings so far this season. Leeds, meanwhile, trail second place Southampton by a single point having closed the gap on automatic promotion significantly in recent weeks.

All the build-up, team news and live match updates here throughout the evening. Kick-off is 7:45pm.

72' Fast Break FC do it again. Summerville speeds onto the ball in behind and immediately plays a lovely ball into Gnonto's path. He races clear and finishes low. Four-nil. Gnonto and Summerville both subbed now for James and Anthony.

68' Georginio rouletting his way out of trouble klaxon. Joe Allen booked, presumably for hauling him back, or giving the ref some backchat.

61' Swansea subs.

ON: Allen, Yates

OFF: Fulton, Cullen

59' Leeds in down the left-hand side as Summerville cutely flicks it into Firpo's feet as he overlaps. Spaniard dribbles for a split second too long and ends up tapping his low cross into Rushworth's arms.

57' Paterson lashes one over the crossbar after a deep Swansea cross had been headed back into his path inside the box. Best opportunity hosts have had. Leeds keeping them at arm's length but intensity of the first half not there.
