Leeds have been shipping goals at an alarming rate with the side from Yorkshire conceding at least twice in seven of their last 10 matches in all competitions.

Accrington for their part have a respectable scoring record in front of their own fans this term despite languishing in the relegation zone with the Lancashire outfit netting in 13 of their 17 competitive home fixtures this term, and they will feel they could be capable of causing Leeds some problems.
