Confirmed Leeds line-up v Reading: Midfielder returns in single change

By Harvey Byrne

Leeds have made one change to their side which suffered a 2-0 loss against Brighton on Friday evening.

Manager Garry Monk has decided to bring midfielder Stuart Dallas into his starting line-up.

The change has seen Kalvin Phillips drop out of the eleven after seeing a red card at the Amex Stadium.

Leeds revealed the team news on their official Twitter account ahead of the Tuesday evening Championship clash against Reading at Elland Road.

The Yorkshire giants are currently exceeding pre-season expectations, as they occupy sixth place in the Championship table.

However, Reading are above them in the league in third place and will provide a stern test to Monk’s outfit.

The clubs are separated by five points and three places in the Championship and many are expecting a tight contest.

The defeat on Friday means that Leeds have won two and lost two of their last four fixtures in the league.

Meanwhile, Reading have won six of their last seven Championship encounters.

The two teams last met in April, bringing a 3-2 win for the Yorkshire giants at Elland Road.

A Toumani Diagouraga strike alongside a Chris Wood double ensured their side all three points and fans will be hoping for a similar result.

In other Leeds team news, these are the first two signings that incoming new owner Andrea Radrizzani will make in the January transfer window.
