Leeds confirmed line-up v Millwall: 26-year-old omitted in only change

By Danny Wright

Leeds United have made one change to their squad to face Millwall at the New Den on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites confirmed on their official Twitter account prior to kick-off that Liam Cooper has been omitted from the clash due to injury and has been replaced by Conor Shaughnessey.

The 26-year-old centre-back was a fitness doubt before the clash and seems to have missed out on the squad all together.

Thomas Christiansen will be looking to see his side strengthen their grip at the top of the Championship table with a win against Millwall, however the New Den hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for the Yorkshire club in recent seasons.

Leeds’ last win on the Lions’ home turf came in 2012 when Ross McCormack scored the only goal in a 1-0 win, but since then the home side has won on every occasion.

Millwall go into Saturday’s clash 19th in the Championship standings having won just one of their opening seven fixtures of the campaign.

Since they thrashed Norwich 4-0 before the international break, they lost narrowly to Wolves before being held to a 2-2 draw at QPR on Tuesday night.

Things couldn’t be more different for Leeds, who are perched top of the table having avoided defeat in their first seven games without even conceding a goal since the opening day win over Bolton.
