Leeds Manager makes Leeds United selection warning as position on line-up changes explained

Leeds United plays Hull City on Wednesday night at the MKM Stadium in the second of three games in six days.

Daniel Farke, the manager of Leeds United, believes he will resist the urge to significantly alter his starting lineup when Leeds United takes on Hull City. The second of three games that Leeds will play in six days will be played at the MKM Stadium.

Farke has previously discussed the unfairness of Leeds’ current schedule when opponents Hull play three times in nine days and have an extra two days to prepare for this Yorkshire derby. The run of fixtures in such a short period of time and following an international break is of some concern to Farke.

While this annoyance is evident, as is the worry about playing so many games quickly,

Farke says a bigger concern right now is losing the rhythm his team have built up on the back of back-to-back away wins at Ipswich Town and then on Sunday, Millwall. Leeds have scored seven goals in their last two away games and head to Hull with renewed confidence and looking to make a further significant move up the Championship standings.

Farke expalined his position; “When there is a quick turnaround there are some question marks as there are always knocks and bruises. We have a lot of quality and a lot of players who are pushing. I am not too concerned about the turnaround but we have to keep in mind the complete picture because players came back from international duty and there is lots of travelling and sometimes many minutes.

We currently have a hectic week with three games in six days, but generally speaking, I am not a fan of rotating too frequently because it causes slight rhythmic pauses. But I am constantly considering the first, second, and third spots. Without a doubt, none of the 11 players will be changed.

Patrick Bamford’s return to full training this week has increased the squad options available to Farke, albeit the striker is not anticipated to play any part against Hull, as opposed to Ethan Ampadu, who is anticipated to recover from a knock in time to play.
