Sports Mole previews Leeds United's match against Burnley at Elland Road in the Championship on Tuesday evening.

Leeds United can increase their chances of a top-half finish in the Championship when they face Burnley at Elland Road on Tuesday evening.

Brian McDermott's side are not involved in the promotion or relegation battles, but the team still need to secure points to improve on last season's 14th-place finish.

The home side will be aiming for back-to-back wins, having ended a four-match losing streak by beating Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Burnley are also assured of another season in the Championship, having moved away from the relegation zone in recent weeks.

However, manager Sean Dyche will be hoping that his team can put their defeat to Blackpool at the weekend behind them.
