Leeds v Derby Team News
The Championship gets fully underway today and Leeds United head the bill with a good chance of landing the three points against Derby .
Leeds expect a crowd in excess of 30 000 for the game which will be shown live on BBC1 at 5.15pm .
Leeds made a flying start to last season and were unbeaten in their first 14 home games . An electric atmosphere today at Elland Road should help to fire up Simon Grayson’s team who will be without Billy Paynter , Robert Snodgrass , Max Gradel and David Somma .
Luciano Becchio is expected to lead the home attack with support from Mike Grella and pacy winger Lloyd Sam .
Derby manager Nigel Clough also has injury problems with Shaun Barker , Stephen Pearson and Miles Addison all missing today’s clash through injury . The Rams are expected to include Robbie Savage in the centre of midfield but the weakened team may struggle to hold on against a fired up Leeds .
The odds of 11/10 against Leeds seem decent value and are still available with Paddy Power , William Hill and Victor Chandler .
Derby have won just one of their last ten away games and may well struggle to score this evening . Paddy Power offer decent odds of Leeds winning to nil at 12/5 .
