Leeds United travel across the Pennines to play Burnley in what should be a very close game between two evenly matched sides. 
Seven wins from 10 home games give Burnley the second best home record in the league and they go into to the match odds-on to gain all three points.

Leeds, however, are the form side and the win over Crystal Palace last week extended their unbeaten run to seven games. In that run the Whites have picked up eight points on the road and will be happy to take away one from today's game.

Defender Paul Connelly could return for the Whites after his suspension, although Grayson could choose to retain Andy Hughes in the Leeds defence. Naylor is still out after knee surgery, and after being transfer-listed Bradley Johnson may lose his place in the starting 11, with chairman Ken Bates calling on the Leeds youngster to show more respect. The midfielder has been named as a supposed target for Burnley in the January transfer window.
Two players will be hoping to make their 100th appearances for Leeds – Robert Snodgrass and Neil Kilkenny.
