Leeds entertain table toppers Leicester City in Simon Grayson`s first game in charge on Boxing Day.
Leeds have lost their last five games in a row which led to the dismissal of Gary McAllister after last Saturday`s 3-1 defeat at Milton Keynes, that defeat saw them drop down to ninth place five points outside the play offs.
Last time at home Leeds lost 2-1 against Colchester United.

The Foxes continue to set the pace in League One and comprehensively beat promotion rivals Peterborough United 4-0 at The Walker Stadium last Saturday.
In their last away game they beat Carlisle United 2-1.

The Whites are hoping to welcome back both Jermaine Beckford and Andy Robinson who have returned to training this week after hamstring injuries.
David Prutton is available again after missing the Milton Keynes game through suspension.
The visitors have Joe Mattock back in contention after missing the last game through illness; he`s likely to replace Chris Powell in probably their only change from last week`s win.
Leeds have met Leicester City more than any other club during their history, Boxing Day will be the 112th meeting between the two sides.
The home side have by far the better record at Elland Road, in 54 meetings Leeds have won 31, drawn 12 and lost 11.
The last time they met at Elland Road was in the 2006/07 season when Leicester went away with a 2-1 victory.
The last time there was a 0-0 at Elland Road between them was in 1922, the only time there has ever been a goal less draw at Leeds when they have met in 54 occasions.
