Leeds United are travelling all the way to Doncaster to play in League Cup against The Vikings and here's everything you need to know about the match:

Date and Time:

13 August, Tuesday 19:45

Venue:

Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster

Weather Forecast:

Warm and zero chance of rain.

Doncaster team news and a possible lineup:

BBC Sport is reporting that Danny N'Guessan, a new signing to the team, would be out of this game due to a foot injury, while Paul Keegan could be making his comeback after missing the last two months of previous season.

A possible lineup predicted by Sportsmole is set to look like this: Marosi; McCulloch, MacKenzie, Butler, Taylor-Sinclair; Coppinger, Chaplow, Wellens, Forrester; Main, Tyson

Leeds team news and possible lineups:

Stuart Dallas is set to start as he needs more matches to gain full fitness, as confirmed by Rosler during pre-match conference. But what was more important during it, was the fact that the boss stated that Luke Murphy might be playing as the League Cup is "a great opportunity to have him involved". Murphy, who has been dealing with an injury is now fit and has already played with the U21 on Monday.

A possible lineup predicted by Sportsmole is: Turnbull; Wootton, Cooper, Bamba, Taylor; Murphy, Adeyemi, Phillips; Antenucci, Erwin, Doukara

Previously:

The last time both of the teams met was in the 13/14 season when Rovers were relegated but they still managed a 2-1 win at Elland Road. Before that, Leeds have had a six win streak with Doncaster.

Summary:

Leeds are preparing for a busy ten days in which they are set to play four games. High squad rotation is expected and there might be a few surprises. A real test for The Whites and their squad depth, but considering The Whites' recent form, with enough concentration in the defense and another solid performance from Antenucci and Dallas, this should be quite an easy game for them.

TIAT's score prediction: 2-0
