Confirmed Leeds line-up v Rotherham: Attacking stars return in three changes
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds have made three changes to their side to face Rotherham in the Championship at Elland Road on Monday.
Manager Garry Monk has decided to bring attacking stars Pablo Hernandez and Chris Wood back into his starting eleven.
This has seen Liam Cooper, Stuart Dallas and Kalvin Phillips fall from the starting line-up and drop to bench.
Leeds announced their team on their official Twitter account ahead of the Yorkshire encounter.

They will be keen to maintain their good form with just a two-point gap separating Monk’s team from seventh placed Derby.
By contrast, Rotherham are currently propping up the table in 24th with just 13 points from their 24 league fixtures this season.
They are six points adrift at the bottom with an 11 point gap separating them from those outside of the relegation zone.
It will be a match which the Whites will be expecting to take all three points from.
However, nothing is simple in England’s second tier and when the two sides last met in November it saw a tight affair with goals from Wood and Souleymane Doukara helping their team to a 2-1 victory over the 10-man Millers.
