Bristol City will travel to Elland Road on the weekend ahead of their clash with Leeds, no doubt filled with confidence after their dramatic late winner against Rotherham on Wednesday night. Young star Tommy Conway scored both goals in the 2-1 victory in just his third short appearance after his return from a hamstring injury which has plagued his season. However, Nigel Pearson has confirmed that the midweek hero won’t be starting, making fellow academy graduate and league top scorer Sam Bell the main goal threat.

The opponents are on good form, only losing one game in their last five, a 3-1 away defeat to Southampton. Both teams will look to add to their points tally in a tight play off push, with only two points separating 14th and sixth place. Leeds will be without full backs Djed Spence and Junior Firpo, as well as tricky winger Wilfried Gnonto, all ruled out with injury. The Robins will remain without Zak Vyner, who’s still out with his ligament injury.

It will no doubt be a tough game, with Leeds not losing in their last seven games against Bristol City, but the Championship is always full of surprises.
