Leeds V Everton Pre-View

Leeds United will be looking to claim a Premier League scalp when they take on in-form Everton at Elland Road  tonight.Leeds geared up for the clash with a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest at the weekend, which kept them in mid-table in the Championship. Everton swept aside Swansea City 3-1 on Saturday to further boost confidence following a flying start to the season.Both set of fans are also planning to pay a tribute to the late Wales manager Gary Speed, who spent time with both clubs during his playing career.It should be an electric atmosphere at Elland road with Everton reported to be bringing 4000+ travelling fans.Leeds skipper Lee Peltier is a major doubt after being forced out of the weekend win over Nottingham Forest with an ankle injury.Warnock will also make a late decision on striker Luciano Becchio, who fired his seventh goal in eight appearances this season against Forest despite carrying an ankle injury.Teenager Dominic Poleon scored on his full debut for the club against Forest and will be hoping to resume his partnership up front with Becchio, although Andy Gray provides Warnock with an alternative option.Everton striker Nikica Jelavic has recovered from a shin injury and returns to the squad.Manager David Moyes is expected to make a couple of changes but he plans to put out a strong side and defender Sylvain Distin could return having been rested at the weekend.
