Fixture: Sheffield Wednesday vs Leeds United
Competition: Championship
Kick-off: 12:30 (UK time)

Leeds United have confirmed their side and substitutes to take on Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday in a Championship match at Hillsborough this afternoon.

Whites boss Garry Monk heads into the game under pressure as his side have taken just one point from their opening three league matches so far this season, while also only squeezing past Fleetwood Town in the EFL Cup on penalties.

Monk, desperate for his team to win at Hillsborough, instantly drafts new signing Liam Bridcutt into the team and he will look to dominate the midfield with young Ronaldo Vieira. Up front, Chris Wood is the target man, although he has support from Marcus Antonsson. Hadi Sacko will also look to get forward, along with Alex Mowatt.

At the back, Liam Cooper partners Kyle Bartley in the centre of defence, while Luke Ayling and Charlie Taylor are full-backs. On the bench, Monk can turn to Pablo Hernandez, Kemar Roofe or Souleymane Doukara if he needs to throw on another attacking option. New signing Pontus Jansson is not in the matchday squad.
