  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    13. Great defending from Andersen.

    Bamford feeds Tyler Roberts who wants to take an extra touch inside the box.

    Andersen manages to stretch out a limb and concedes a corner, but it could have been so much worse.

    The resulting corner is overhit by Leeds.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    12. Corner for Leeds.

    Harrison takes it on the left and Walton punches it.

    Helder Costa picks up the scraps and runs it towards the byline but it's too strong and a goal kick.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    11. Another good ball towards Ludewig nearly finds him in the box.

    It's only just overhit and Meslier claims it.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    9. HUGE CHANCE FOR BARNSLEY!

    Barnsley press brilliantly.

    Styles wins the ball back and then Brown makes a superb run across the Leeds defence and the ball finds him.

    He's in the box with time, but he goes wide of the goal and the angle is narrow.

    Brown waits to get his body adjusted so he can shoot with his favourite right foot, but pulls his shot across goal and wide.

    Poor finish given the opportunity.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    9. Again Barnsley have a similar ball.

    Halme plays a ball over the Leeds defence towards Chaplin, but it's simply overhit.

    The forward isn't going to do much with that.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    8. Big hoof down the channel for Barnsley comes to nothing.

    That's a hopeless ball which gives Leeds a goal kick.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    6. The home side getting some possession among their defenders now.

    The ball is played into midfield and then the defenders are allowed the ball back.

    Leeds can't find their forwards in possession yet though.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    5. Well played by Tyler Roberts, is allowed to turn in the centre circle and plays it right.

    A cross-field pass is overhit towards Harrison.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    3. Brown does well for Barnsley in the Leeds box.

    He is able to take three touches but the supporting runs aren't right and he can't find a team-mate.

    Leeds swarm to clear the ball, but back come the visitors.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    3. The average age of Barnsley is only 22 years old.

    Blimey that's a young side.

    Wonder what will happen to some of these young players if they get relegated to League One.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    3. Good work from Williams at left-back wins the ball back for Barnsley.

    The Welshman helps the visitors work it out of their half, but Leeds win a throw-in.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    2. Without Kalvin Phillips, it's Jack Harrison taking the corners for the home side, but Barnsley clear it.

    1. Tyler Roberts does well in the left corner.

    He is in a tussle but wins a corner for the home side.

  • LEEDS 0-0 BARNSLEY

    1. Barnsley, all in red, kick this one off.

    Leeds in their familiar all-white, are attacking left to right.

  • HERE WE GO!

    PEEEEEP!

  • MINUTE'S SILENCE

    There's an impeccable 60 seconds' pause to remember this man.

    Rest in peace Big Jack Charlton.

  • HERE COME THE PLAYERS

    It's nearly time for kick-off at Elland Road.

  • BASEMENT BOYS

    Time is running out for Barnsley to beat the drop.

    Can they do it in time?

  • WE'LL BE ALL WHITE

    Ben White will step into defensive midfield in Kalvin Phillips' absence.

    Let's see how the 22-year-old will cope today.

  • BIELSA SPEAKS

    The Argentine says: “We analyse every match differently and consider that we have to go step by step and we are more focused on attacking the final part of the pitch when the opponent is close to their own box.”

  • WE'RE CUT OUT FOR THE TOP

    Owner Andrea Radrizzani has been getting a selfie with cardboard cutout fans at Elland Road.

    The ground looks very impressive with paper supporters in.

  • WE'LL TYKE OUR BEST SHOT

    Barnsley manager Gerhard Struber says his team will go for a result tonight, despite being rock bottom of the Championship.

    The Austrian says: “We believe in our quality and out game style, the mood in our dressing room is very good.

    “We know that for the opponent it's a massive moment for them today, especially with the style of the opponent.

    “We have the energy to fight this 90 minutes, in the end we will see if we can pick up points against this massive opponent.

    “They have a clear plan with rotations and our plan today is to give the opponent no space no time, with the right aggression and intensity we can create some action.

    “I trust my boys, we are ready for a fight. We believe we can make a surprise.”

  • HAMSTRING FOR HERNA

    Liberty Stadium her Pablo Hernandez, who scored a last-minute winner against Swansea, has a hamstring issue and starts on the bench today.

  • THIS IS FOR YOU, JACK

    This will be Leeds' first game back at Elland Road since the sad passing of club legend Jack Charlton.

    What a player, what a man, what a personality.

    Football is certainly the poorer without him, but United can pay the perfect tribute to him tonight.

  • WHERE'S KAL?

    Kalvin Phillips is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

    The holding midfielder picked up the blow during Leeds' 1-0 win at Swansea the other night.

    The club said: “Leeds United can confirm Kalvin Phillips faces up to five weeks on the side-lines after sustaining a knee injury in Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Swansea City.

    “The Yorkshire Pirlo, who helped Leeds record a 1-0 victory at the Liberty Stadium, has been influential for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this season, having featured 40 times, scoring two goals in all competitions.”
