Match Preview: Leeds United (A)

19 January 2024

Less than a month on from the Boxing Day victory over Leeds United, North End are off to Elland Road this Sunday for a 12pm kick-off.

Match Details

Date: Sunday 21st January, 12pm kick-off
Venue: Elland Road
Competition: Sky Bet Championship
Kit: Third kit

Supporter Information

Tickets are no longer on sale for this fixture and there will be none available to purchase on the day of the match.

Tickets can be collected during the 90 minutes before kick-off from the visitors ticket window, which is adjacent to away turnstiles one and two. Please note, photo ID will be required for collections at Elland Road.

Leeds United have a prayer room which can accommodate a maximum of two people at once in the West Stand. Supporters who wish to use the prayer room on the day are asked to email and an escort will be arranged.

Supporters are reminded about the strong measures in football this season, such as stadium bans and criminal prosecution, for dangerous and illegal behaviour at matches. This includes tragedy abuse, entering the pitch without permission, carrying or using smoke bombs or pyrotechnics, and discriminatory behaviour.

Who’s Available?

In his pre-match interview, manager Ryan Lowe shared that there has been illness within the squad during the previous few days, however he was hopeful players would be back fit and available to feature.

However, the injuries which kept Ched Evans and Jack Whatmough sidelined last weekend will see them miss out again on Sunday.

Brad Potts, who limped off against Bristol City in the previous outing, has recovered from a toe infection and is expected to make his 200th North End appearance at Elland Road.

Opposition Focus


In their first season back in the Championship, Leeds United are well on track to achieve at least a Play-Off spot as they look to make an instant return to the top flight.

After losing to North End on Boxing Day, Daniel Farke’s men were then beaten away from home against West Brom, however 3-0 wins against Birmingham City and Cardiff City have seen them get back on track.

They’ve got work to do to close the seven-point gap between themselves and second-placed Ipswich Town, but there’s certainly no shortage of quality within their ranks.

A Recent Clash

A stunning strike from Liam Millar in the 89th minute earned North End a Boxing Day victory over Leeds United.
