LUFC - Leeds United v Walsall preview
Leeds face Walsall at Elland Road hoping to build on Tuesday night`s victory over Leyton Orient.
Leeds won their last game against Leyton Orient and are on a good run of form at home. So far at home they have won four, drawn one and lost one.
Walsall got a good draw at Leicester City in midweek, so far this season on their travels they have won one, drawn three and lost one.
Andy Hughes and Rui Marques remain doubts; Alan Sheehan is definitely out with his hamstring injury.
Stephen Hughes has been struggling with an illness but is hopeful he will recover in time. Sofiene Zaaboub is still recovering from a groin injury.
The clubs have only ever met on twelve occasions in total with six of those at Elland Road. Walsall only has one draw to show for their efforts in those encounters.
Mark Aizlewood never kicked a ball again for Leeds after scoring in the fixture in 1989, after receiving stick from the kop throughout the game he scored the winner with six minutes remaining; his reaction was to stick two fingers up at the kop!
Before he`d got back to the half way line Howard Wilkinson had subbed him.
