Despite the winless start to the calendar year, Boro are still in the playoff places but their chance of automatic promotion seems a long way off now.
The last two defeats will have hurt most. Last weekend they were battered 4-0 by an Ipswich side who had also gone winless in January before yesterday they threw away a lead at home to another struggling side in Barnsley.
Warnock has no new injury worries and may consider bringing back El Hadji Diouf and Ross Barkley into midfield after the pair dropped to the bench at Wolves.
The reverse of this fixture was just before Christmas and it was Leeds who came out on top 2-1 at Elland Road.
Possible starting lineups
Boro: Steele; Williams, Hines, Bikey, Friend; Leadbitter, Bailey, McEachran, Ledesma; Jutkiewicz, Carayol
Leeds: Kenny; Byram, Peltier, Lees, Warnock; Diouf, Brown, Barkley, Varney; Morison, McCormack
Sports Mole says: 2-2
