Team News

Leeds
Wigan
  • Leeds are expected to revert back to a 4-1-4-1 system here, with Adam Forshaw hoping to return to the defensive midfield position after he started on the bench against Sheffield Wednesday.
  • Kalvin Phillips will fill in once again at the back as Liam Cooper continues his recovery from injury.
  • Paul Cook will opt for the same back four that faced Norwich last weekend, but could recall midfielders Nick Powell and Josh Windass further forward.

Prediction

  • Results last weekend saw Leeds move three points clear of Sheffield United in third place and if the Whites win here and results elsewhere go in their favour again, promotion will be all but confirmed.
  • Wigan kept their distance with 22nd-placed Rotherham at the weekend with a shock draw with league leaders Norwich. Paul Cook will see no reason why his side can't replicate that feat here.
