Team News
Leeds United
Helder Costa could return to Leeds United's starting line-up for the visit of Middlesbrough after Tyler Roberts was sidelined with a hamstring problem, Forshaw still out and Eddy not ready

Costa came off the bench to replace the injured Roberts in Tuesday's 1-0 victory at Reading which extended Leeds' unbeaten run to seven games.


Middlesbrough
Boro will be without Anfernee Dijksteel (knee), while Britt Assombalonga and Paddy McNair are doubts.

George Saville returns from suspension, but Marvin Johnson is still banned.

The match will see former Leeds defender Jonathan Woodgate return to Elland Road as a manager for the first time.

Match facts
Leeds United are unbeaten in their past six league meetings with Middlesbrough at Elland Road (W4 D2), since a 1-0 reverse in August 2011.
Middlesbrough have lost just once in their past six matches against Leeds United (W2 D3 L1), losing at Elland Road in November 2017.
Leeds have won 37 points from their 18 Championship games this season, their highest points tally at this stage of a campaign in the top two tiers of English Football since 1999/00 (41 points), whilst in the Premier League.
Middlesbrough are winless in their past eight away league games (D4 L4), last going longer without a victory on the road between August 2016 and August 2017 (a run of 20), across spells in the Championship and Premier League.
Leeds have made the fewest changes to their starting XI's in the Championship this season (12), half the number of next placed side Brentford (24).
Middlesbrough have the lowest shot conversion rate in the Championship this season (7.24%), netting just 16 of their 221 attempts on goal.

There you are then, all signs point to a win for the Whites but let's not get complacent, Boro are 18 places and 20 points adrift of Marcelo Bielsa's high-flying Whites after 18 games but this is the Championship so i'm going to be a little cautious and predict a 3-0 Win with Alioski and Bamford (2) doing the honours

Would have liked Phillips in because form goes out of the window these games. They will be trying their hearts out against us.

Who the heck plays in his position with Forshaw out also? Berardi?

So what we do when we have any injury anywhere on the pitch...

We stick Dallas there...

Ben White will likely replace Phillips.
Berardi into centre back

Brilliant performance and result today.

Be a shame to move Ben White but he will be brilliant in that role as well. Could almost play the lad in the 10, that's how good he is on the ball

Big difference between halves today. We were poor in the first and improved in the second. Klich did the same.

Play like we did in the first ten minutes of the first half and most of the second half and we will blow more teams away this season.

Yeah that's probably right.

Rather White stay at the back where he has been consistently top drawer.
