Farke has been carrying out impressive work at Elland Road in recent weeks and under his leadership the Whites have risen to third place in the Championship standings.


There remain question marks about Leeds’ defending and they had to come from two goals down to win away at Norwich City at the weekend.




Now a night trip to Stoke looms and Farke is fully aware of the reputation that the Potters have for making life uncomfortable under the lights.


He is expecting a big test and a Stoke side whose current position of 20th does not predict where they will finish.



“I don’t want to use the old English quote about Stoke but we have to be fully switched on”, Farke told a press conference.


“I expect them to finish in a much better position than they are in at the moment”, he added.



Stoke have won just four of their 12 league games so far this season to add to the sense of pressure on Alex Neil.
