Pre-match quotes: Leeds United v Leicester City

Through It All Together gathers the thoughts of both managers ahead of tonight's midweek clash.

After the whites' impressive 2-1 win at the weekend, taking Crystal Palace's 14 match unbeaten run, Leicester travel to Elland Road tonight. The Foxes are unbeaten in 4 league games.

Below are the thoughts of both managers ahead of tonight's Championship game:

Neil Warnock speaking about fielding an unchanged side:

"Have we got reason to change?

"If you don't have a reason, you don't change things so we'll see. I couldn't tell you the last time we fielded an unchanged side."

Neil Warnock on the midweek clash:

"It is a big week in terms of games so I'll speak to some of the lads. Three games in a week is a lot for some of them, players like Dioufy, so we'll have a chat and weigh things up.

"I'm not too concerned about the loan lads we've brought in having a lack of games. Alan Tate is a player who plays within himself and he will be fine. Jerome is slightly different being a winger, but we'll see.

"Ross is an option, I'd still like to see him have a full game just so he knows where he is, but he's come off the bench and done okay."

Nigel Pearson:

"They had a good result at the weekend, both for themselves and also for us, and we know that they’re capable of producing good performances.

"Leeds is traditionally a difficult place to go and get results, but we’re upbeat about ourselves and, if our performance is right, we’ll cause them problems as well.

"It’s a game we’re looking forward to and it’s a game I’m sure both sides will be looking to win.

"Looking at how they played against Palace, they will try to get bodies into the box and get themselves into goal-scoring positions, so we have to show the same resilience we showed on Saturday, but also continue to play our football.

"We’ve got an experienced back five, but we defend well as a team. The energy levels we get from our forwards allow us to defend from the front when we haven’t got the ball.

"But if you keep clean sheets, you clearly have a better chance of winning games."
