Leeds face Darlington in the Second round of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy at Elland Road on Tuesday night.
The Whites have drawn their last two home games in the League against Carlisle and Charlton both in the last week.
Leeds are currently three points clear at the top of League One and are the only unbeaten side still remaining in the Football League this season after eleven games.
The Quakers are currently bottom of League Two with only two draws to show from their opening eleven league games.
Last time out they lost 1-0 at home against Macclesfield Town.
So far on their travels this season they have drawn one and lost four.
Their only victory in any competition was in the first round of this competition when they defeated Lincoln City at home 1-0.
The two clubs have only ever met four times in their history with two of those coming in the past three seasons.
Darlington are unbeaten in their only previous visit to Elland Road.
They have already clashed this season in the first round of the Carling Cup at Darlington, Leeds won 1-0 thanks to an early second half goal from Enoch Showunmi.
