Leeds travel to Bootham Crescent to take on their Yorkshire neighbours York City later today. Leeds will be looking to field some different players then played in the last match at Forest Green Rovers and see how they do in a more competitive environment than they see in training.

Leeds have played York City twice in the League Cup back in 1987, a one-all draw at Elland Road followed by a 4-0 win at Bootham Cresent. Leeds signed Ryan Edmondson from York last autumn, and the Minstermen also had Bailey Peacock-Farrell on loan last November.

LUTV will stream the match to all customers, and if you watched the previous match against Forest Green Rovers, you’ll know that you can buy a Pre-Season Pass to watch all the pre-season matches on LUTV or you can buy them individually.

Look for a completely different line-up as the starters went all 90 minutes against Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday. Lewis Baker, Yosuke Ideguchi and Jamal Blackman could all make their preseason “debut” for the club, while Mateusz Klich and Laurens De Bock will be looking to impress the new gaffer after being dropped or, in Klich’s case, sent out on loan.

A few other youth players might get their debuts with the first team, including Bryce Hosannah and Oriol Rey. Other players who might get some playing time in the match will include Kamil Miazek in goal, Hugo Diaz, Liam Kitching, Aapo Halme, and Pascal Strujik in central defence, Jack Clarke and Sam Dalby up top, and Jamie Shackleton in midfield.

Should be another interesting match to see what formation Marcelo Bielsa has Leeds play and what kind of tactics will be used.
