Leeds United go into tomorrows game with a new found energy having climbed off the bottom of the table. Vital Leeds looks towards this important Championship clash.

Vital Quotes:

Leeds assistant manager Gus Poyet is hoping that the expected near sell-out crowd can intimidate the opponents, just like they used to when Poyet and co played for Chelsea.

'Elland Road was a very hard place to come when I was a player,' said Gus.

'If we were not spot-on as a team, it was difficult to handle.

'We have said to the players that we need to turn Elland Road into the sort of place me and Dennis came to as players. I know that was with Chelsea and they are always big games.'

Meanwhile, Plymouth's number two Tim Breacker has discussed the task of trying to lift the mood after Argyle were thumped 4-0 by Burnley at Turf Moor.

'It is a challenge for us but we will be concentrating on the positives from the season and the reasons that we feel we have done well.

'We will be focusing on why we have done well and not dwelling on it'

Leeds United Team News:

Alan Thompson is believed to be on the verge of a return to the squad after missing the last two games. Apart from the usual suspects, Frazer Richardson is the only worry but looks set to get rid of the niggling ankle problem he managed to pick up against Preston.

Player to watch: Radostin Kishishev

The instrumental loanee has certainly given us something right in the heart of the Leeds United midfield. Definitely the one to watch!

Plymouth Argyle Team News:

David Norris returns from suspension for Plymouth however defender Mat Doumbe continues his ban. Doumbe is likely to be replaced by Krisztian Timar. Utility man Lee Hodges won't play courtesy of a hamstring injury.

Player to watch: Scott Sinclair

Sinclair, currently on-loan from Chelsea has been impressive ever since he moved down south from Stamford Bridge. An exciting player, who will have to be controlled carefully by the Leeds defence.

Did You Know?

The historic Devenport dockyard is the only nuclear warship refueling facility for the Royal Navy.

Devenport dockyard is home to HMS Cornwall, the Type 22 Frigate that has been in the news recently due to the Iranian capture of UK seamen.

Finally, in a continuation of the nautical theme, the father of Plymouth boss Ian Holloway was once too a seaman.

Ref Watch:

The referee for the game is S.W.Mathieson.

Match Prediction:

Leeds United to continue their run, 2-0 this time and send the pilgrims on a very long journey back home.

Next Up

After Plymouth, Leeds travel to Colchester on Easter Monday.
