Sports Mole previews Leeds United's home fixture with Cardiff City on Saturday.

Leeds United welcome Championship leaders Cardiff City to Elland Road on Saturday looking to boost their hopes of reaching the playoffs.

The Whites are currently 11th in the table and trail six-placed Middlesbrough by six points.

Neil Warnock will be without top scorer Lucciano Becchio, who has joined up with former Leeds players Robert Snodgrass and Jonny Howson at Norwich City.

However, Steve Morison is a ready replacement after arriving in Yorkshire as part of the deal.

The Bluebirds are on a six-game unbeaten league run since losing 2-1 at struggling Peterborough United.

Malky Mackay's men were knocked out of the FA Cup by Macclesfield Town.

Neither team have any injury worries, although Luke Varney, Samuel Byram, Ben Turner, Heidar Helguson and Peter Whittingham are all one booking away from a suspension.
