Great to see 4-4-2. UTC.

7:14pm

15-goal top scorer Lewis Grabban netted for Cherries in their 2-1 defeat at Leeds in October, a match which saw goalkeeper Ryan Allsop controversially sent off for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity during the first half.

That victory ended a run of four consecutive defeats for Leeds at the time. 

7:14pm

Cherries' defence, however, has been in fine form of late, conceding just one goal in six Championship outings in March with four of those matches won.

Since losing 3-0 at Wigan Athletic on January 11, Eddie Howe's men have conceded more than one goal in a league fixture on just one occasion, February's 2-2 draw at Bolton Wanderers.

 

7:11pm

However, Middlesbrough are the only team to prevent Brian McDermott's side from scoring in United's past 10 league matches.

Leeds boast the second tier's top scorer, Ross McCormack, who has rattled in 25 league goals this season, half of the Elland Road club's Championship tally.

Former Oldham striker Matt Smith, who has bagged 10 league goals so far, plied his trade in the Conference North for Redditch United, Solihull Moors and Droylsden just three years ago. 

7:11pm

Saturday's 2-1 win over Millwall was 13th-placed Leeds United's first win in six Championship matches.

It was also only their third win in 16 matches in all competitions since Christmas Day.

7:10pm

Time for a bit of number crunching ahead of tonight's action at Dean Court.

First, some Leeds United stats... 

7:08pm

We'll be keeping you updated with all the non-league fixtures tonight too. 

Poole Town are away to Biggleswade Town in the Southern League Premier Division with struggling Bashley hosting Hungerford Town. 

Wimborne Town entertain play-off chasing Yate Town in Southern South & West and in the Wessex Premier, Bournemouth Poppies host league leaders Sholing, Christchurch travel to fellow strugglers Totton & Eling and Hamworthy United take on Dorset rivals Verwood Town. 

7:01pm

One change for Leeds United following Saturday's 2-1 win over Millwall.

Noel Hunt comes in for loan striker Connor Wickham, who was yesterday recalled by parent club Sunderland. 

6:58pm

So the teams are in and Cherries make two changes from Saturday's win 1-0 at Barnsley.

Ryan Fraser, understood to be injured, not in the squad, Eunan O'Kane is on the bench. In come Harry Arter and Marc Pugh.

So they don't change then !!! These are probably some of that scum from before ..... words fail me !! Re the match - been following the game online all evening and can not be more proud of the lads. Well done to all and it sounds like Francis had a blinder. We can all dream and lets hope we finish with a flourish and end up as high as we can - with the strength of this division playoffs out of the question ? Must be absolutely safe for next season and that's what matters - building on a fantastic group of players we are building for the future and that looks pretty good from here !
