Leeds United go in search of a win-streak record that stretches way back into the 1930s this afternoon when they take on Hull City at Elland Road.

The seven consecutive win the Whites have accrued, since being hammered by West Brom, have shot them to the top of the Sky Bet Championship. They have a three-point cushion over nearest challengers Norwich, and a further three-point cushion to West Brom in 3rd.

Leedsโ€™ last two games have seen them lead their supporters through heart attack moments. Both games, against Aston Villa and Blackburn, ended 3-2 and contained last-minute winners deep into injury time.

A winโ€™s a win as the saying goes, but Leeds United fans will want the three points to be pocketed in a much less dramatic manner than against Blackburn last time out.

Rovers took the lead in the 89th minute only for Leeds to equalise almost straight after and then profit via Kemar Roofeโ€™s late late winning header.

Leeds make no changes from the side that put Blackburn to the sword on Boxing Day. It will be this starting XI that aims for not only another three points, but also an historic win streak for the club. On the bench there is just the one change, Robbie Gotts making way for the fit-again Tyler Roberts.
