Adelakun starts at Elland Road

Hakeeb Adelakun is set to make his City debut against Leeds United this afternoon (Saturday, November 24th, 3pm KO).

The winger is brought into Lee Johnson’s starting XI, for the first match since the international break. The City head coach has made four changes from the side which kicked-off against Preston North End a fortnight ago with Lloyd Kelly, Niclas Eliasson, Jamie Paterson, Adelakun in for Nathan Baker, Jay Dasilva, Liam Walsh and Famara Diédhiou respectively.

Callum O’Dowda has been left out of the matchday squad due to illness, while Matty Taylor is recovering from a hip flexor strain.

More than 800 fans have travelled to Elland Road but there is no pay at the gates.

City: Mäenpää, Hunt, Webster, Kalas, Kelly, Pack (c), Brownhill, Adelakun, Eliasson, Paterson, Weimann. Subs: O’Leary, Baker, Pisano, Dasilva, Walsh, Diédhiou, Eisa.

Leeds United: Huffer, Douglas, Forshaw, Cooper (c), Roofe, Alioski, Dallas, Hernandez, Phillips, Klich, Halme. Subs: Miazek, Saiz, Harrison, Baker, Davis, Shackleton, Clarke.
