Leeds v Bradford preview

Leeds entertains local rivals Bradford City in the first round of the Johnstones Paint Trophy on Tuesday night at Elland Road.

It will be the first time the two clubs have met in a competitive match since Leeds beat Bradford 6-1 in the 2000/2001 season.

The close proximity between the two clubs should ensure a good crowd for the game in a competition that usually struggles to raise any interest until the latter rounds.

Leeds will hope to get back to winning ways after dropping another two points at Elland Road at the weekend in a 2-2 draw with Bristol Rovers.
Bradford lost their first League game of the season on Saturday when going down 3-2 at Aldershot.

Team News
Leeds
Alan Sheehan could return to the team after recovering from injury, Paul Telfer could also been involved after recovering from injury.
Leeds have made quite a few changes to the team during the last three games so no one can be sure what side Mcallister will put out.

Bradford
Matthew Clarke was replaced in the first half on Saturday and is likely to be replaced in the team by Mark Bower.
Club captain Graeme Lee suffered a head injury in the same game but should be ok to play against Leeds.
