Leeds United are undergoing through a major slump in form after being on the receiving end of four defeats and just one win and four defeats which now slides them to the second spot with 55 points while being four points away from West Brom. Leeds will be eager for a win in order to restore lost form but will get a stern test from Brentford who reside at the fifth spot with 53 points. Brentford has won three, drawn one and lost one from the previous five games and could propel to second if they bag a vital win at home.
Date- Wednesday, February 12
Kick-Off- 1:15 AM (IST)
Venue- Griffin Park
Thomas Frank should be opting for an unchanged eleven after registering a 3-2 win against Middlesbrough. Having said that, the hosts will be without Nikolaos Karelis, Sergi Canos, Komohelo Mokotjo and Pontus Jansson are missing out due to injuries. Benrahma, Watkins and Mbeumo should be starting as the front three.
Jean-Kevin Augustin could get his first start after a disappointing result against Bamford. Kalvin Phillips should be returning to the midfield role after undergoing suspension, which should could make Ben White lineup in defence. Costa, Hernandez, Klich and Harrison should be formulating the midfield, while Augustin could lead the line of attack.
