Leeds will bring in the New Year with a home encounter against last season's relegation survivors Nottingham Forest.
The fixture will come two days after the Whites travel to Birmingham City and end a spell of four games in nine days for Thomas Christiansen's side.
Souleymane Doukara scored a rocket volley as Leeds ended a run of eight games without a win against Forest last January with a 2-0 win at Elland Road.
However, Forest had delivered an early blow to then-Leeds boss Garry Monk by taking a 3-1 win at the City Ground in August 2016.
