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.

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.
