LUFC- Leeds United v Hartlepool United Preview

Leeds entertain fellow League One opposition in the third round of the Carling Cup on Tuesday.

Form
Leeds are full of confidence at the moment after winning at Carlisle on Saturday.
So far in the competition Leeds have won away at Chester City 5-2 and beat Championship side Crystal Palace 4-0 in the last round.

Hartlepool had a good draw against League leaders Oldham Athletic on Saturday coming form 2-0 down to get a 3-3 draw.
So far in the competition Hartlepool have beaten Scunthorpe 3-0 at home and put out Premiership West Brom 3-1 also at home in the last round.

Team news
Leeds
The Whites have liked to change things around in the cup so far this season so Robinson, Prutton, Howson and Snodgrass could all get a start. The only definite absentee is Alan Sheehan who is still suspended.
Aiden White who replaced Sheehan on Saturday limped off after 60 minutes on Saturday; luckily he was only suffering from cramp and will be fit for Tuesday.

Hartlepool
The Pool are probably likely to stick to the same side that earned them the draw on Saturday.


History
The clubs have only ever met four times in all competitions; one of those was in the League Cup in 1965 when Leeds won 4-2.
They met in the League for the first time last season with Leeds running out 2-0 winners when they met at Elland Road.
