Leeds confirmed line-up v Burton: 28-year-old axed in three changes
By Dominic Toner
Leeds have made three changes to their starting XI for the Championship game against Burton on Saturday.
The Whites travel to the Pirelli Stadium in the league and will be looking to get themselves back in the play-off positions.
Garry Monk has decided to make three alterations to his side from the team that lost 1-0 against Wolves in their last match, which saw the Yorkshire club slip out of the play-offs on goal difference.
Leeds’ 28-year-old defender Gaetano Berardi has been dropped and replaced by teammate Charlie Taylor.
Meanwhile, Liam Bridcutt and Alfonso Pedraza have been replaced by Ronaldo Vieira and Souleymane Doukara.

Leeds face the first of three crucial fixtures as they look to finish in the league’s top six.
They have been in the running for promotion for most of the campaign, but a recent drop of form has hindered their chances.
The Whites will finish in the play-off spots if they win all of their games and will hope to start that against 19th-placed Burton, who need a win to stretch their four-point gap over the relegation places.
Monk’s side still have Norwich and Wigan to play this season, but their sole focus will be on maximum points at Burton.
