Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday's Yorkshire derby between Leeds United and Huddersfield Town.

Elland Road plays host to a Yorkshire derby on Saturday afternoon when Leeds United face Huddersfield Town.

Neil Warnock's Leeds are unbeaten in their last six games, although they have won just two of them. They will be seeking three points against Huddersfield to keep alive their hopes of reaching the playoffs.

Huddersfield have won two and lost two of their last four matches. Last weekend's 1-0 defeat at home to Charlton Athletic leaves the Terriers five points clear of the relegation zone.

Leeds missed the opportunity to close the gap on the top six when they drew 1-1 with Peterborough United on Tuesday evening.

El Hadji-Diouf could return to the Leeds side while Tom Lees and Steve Morison face late fitness tests after picking up knocks against Peterborough.

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins will have James Vaughan available again after a two-match ban, while fellow striker Jermaine Beckford could return from a hamstring injury to face his former club.
