Daniel Farke and his Leeds side are locked in a thrilling Championship title race

- Leeds have won 12 of their last 14 Championship matches
- Six of Hull's last eight Championship away games have seen both teams score
- Recommended bet: Leeds to win and both teams to score

Leeds have been in fine form recently and have taken real advantage of Leicester’s downturn in form.

The Foxes looked to have the title wrapped up at one stage but now find themselves third, with Leeds just a point behind league leaders Ipswich.

A 2-2 draw with Watford on Good Friday was not ideal but the Whites are rock solid on home soil.

They face a Hull side that have seen their bid for a top-six spot stall thanks to five games without a win.

Team news

Wilfried Gnonto and Ilia Gruev are doubts so Leeds may have to be creative in how they set up, with Archie Gray potentially featuring in the middle or at right back.

Ethan Ampadu could also feature in defence if Gruev is fit, potentially replacing Liam Cooper in the back line.

Aaron Connolly is also doubtful for Hull while Ozan Tufan and Abdulkadir Omur could force their way into the starting lineup.

The stats

Leeds have been rock solid at Elland Road this season, where they are unbeaten in 19 home games.

The Whites have won 15 and drawn four of those matches and face a Hull side who are winless in their last five games.

The visitors have seen both teams score in six of their last eight games in all competitions, however, so may be able to put up a fight.

Hull manager Liam Rosenior will hope his side can bounce back after going five games without a win.

Prediction

Leeds have impressed in recent weeks, winning 12 of their last 14 league games and they may be able to secure another against a Hull side struggling for form.

The visitors lost 2-0 to relegation-battling Stoke on Friday and that does not bode well for their chances here.

However they have had both teams score in six of their last eight matches and they could get on the scoresheet.

Leeds’ 2-2 draw with Watford last time out showed that they are not impenetrable and the visitors are fancied to get on the scoresheet.

However the home team have won 15 of their 19 league games at Elland Road this term and can extend that good record.
