Two struggling bottom-half Championship sides meet in a Thursday-night affair at Elland Road this week.
The Scot has had two games at the helm, but Thursday's match will be his first at home after back-to-back draws on the road at Fulham and Bolton Wanderers.
Evans said afterwards that it was two points dropped against the Trotters and it leaves Leeds 17th in the table, three points above the bottom three.
The new manager is understandably desperate for a first win, and the players will be feeling the pressure given that Leeds have not won at Elland Road since March, a run of 11 matches in which they have not scored more than once in any game and only five times in total.
It is the worst ever run at home in the club's history. Home and away, Leeds are without a win in five, but they did end their three-game losing streak with the two draws in Evans's first two matches in charge.

Leeds are enduring a historically bad run at home and while it is not quite so bad for Blackburn, Gary Bowyer's side are without a goal in three games.
On Saturday lunchtime they locked horns with Cotton Mills rivals Burnley and more than matched a team who were in the Premier League last season and are challenging at the right end of the table this term.
It could have easily been three points, not zero, for Rovers, but gaining nothing means that they have 12 points from 13 matches and are in real danger of dropping into the relegation zone if they don't start finding the net soon.
As well as their struggles in front of goal, Blackburn are without a win in nine away league games dating back to early April, drawing six of those.
They will hope that Leeds's dreadful form at home can help them end their away hoodoo and a win would be a big boost ahead of their next two fixtures against high-flying Birmingham City and in-form Brentford.

Evans has no new injury worries, but he could make a change in midfield with Jordan Botaka pushing for a start.
Bowyer only made one substitution against Burnley and seems content with his starting XI at the moment, so multiple alterations appear unlikely.
Leeds possible starting lineup:
Silvestri; Byram, Cooper, Bamba, Berardi; Dallas, Adeyemi, Cook, Botaka; Antenucci, Wood
Blackburn possible starting lineup:
Steele; Henley, Duffy, Hanley, Olsson; Marshall, Akpan, Evans, Conway; Lawrence; Rhodes
Head To Head
Blackburn are six unbeaten and have won the last four matches between the two. The most recent clash was in April when Leeds conceded three times in the final half-hour to be comfortably beaten.
Leeds have also conceded in each of their last six at home to Blackburn, after keeping a clean sheet in the four matches prior to this run.
We say: Leeds 2-2 Blackburn
A night-time affair should help the atmosphere at Elland Road and Leeds fans will be desperate to see their side win under Evans. However, it is a terrible home record against an awful away one and that points to a draw.
