Leeds will be without as many as five first-team players for this weekend's fixture as Struijk, Joe Gelhardt, Djed Spence, Stuart Dallas and Jamie Shackleton are all ruled out against Plymouth Argyle.

The Pilgrims face a number of injury issues themselves with striker duo Ryan Hardie and Mustapha Bundu ruled out by boss Steven Schumacher. Although, summer signing and top scorer Morgan Whittaker is available and will be the Devon club's main threat at Elland Road.

Leeds' final fixture before the international break this month gives the team the chance to win six of their last seven games. Presently, the Whites are the Championship's most in-form side, having defeated Leicester City at the King Power Stadium last Friday, picking up 15 points from the last 18 available.

United go into this one sitting third in the table, while Plymouth lie 19th.

Build-up, team news, goal and score updates here throughout the afternoon. Kick-off is at 3pm.

FT: Leeds 2-1 Plymouth

Late goal made for a nervy finish, but Leeds were in control for most of that. Unbeaten home record still stands. Meanwhile, Sam Greenwood's 84th minute free-kick defeats Leicester. The gap shrinks some more.

Nearly there

90+6' Into the final minute of added time and Gnonto wins a corner.


90+3' Gruev booked for kicking the ball away.

Leeds subs

90+1' Georginio and Piroe off; Bamford and Gruev on.

Stoppage time

90' Six added on at Elland Road as Rutter blasts one over the bar.

Last man

89' Yellow. Piroe through on goal from Meslier's long kick forward. There was cover as Gibson gets the Dutchman's shirt and the rest. Calls for a red but that's a yellow all day.

Late changes

89' Bamford and Gruev will be coming on for stoppage time.

Don't even think about it...

88' Plymouth with a couple of corners now. Leeds a little nervy since conceding.

Plymouth get one back 2-1

Goal. Ben Waine gets one back for Argyle. Tap-in after cross from Cundle on the right.

Leeds loanee hurts Leicester

Well, well, well...


83' SAVE! Leeds work it wide to Anthony who cuts inside onto his right, picks his spot but Michael Cooper is equal to it, diving to his left and conceding a corner.

Plymouth sub

81' Houghton off; Butcher on


79' Gnonto's first touch is to set himself after taking receipt of the ball from Georginio. Second is to shoot at goal, but the attempt is blocked well by Scarr.

Leeds subs imminent, too

Plymouth subs

Close call

68' Georginio escapes pressure near Leeds' corner flag and works it to Piroe in the middle for the breakaway. He slides the ball left to Summerville who runs clear and hits the stanchion behind the goal. Flag had gone up but Plymouth were chasing shadows.


66' Cooper penalised for a foul inside the Plymouth half. Play brought back by the referee to book Joe Edwards after clotheslining Dan James moments earlier.

As the kids might say

62' Rutter spins away from danger inside Plymouth's half and dinks one onto the head of Piroe who's made a run into the penalty area. Striker can't direct goalward and instead heads over, but what a ball that was from Georginio - he's cooking.


61' Morgan Whittaker booked for a late tackle on Firpo.
