Bristol City head to Elland Road to face Leeds United on Saturday buoyed by their victory against Derby County in midweek. 

Lee Johnson’s men picked up their fourth win their last five league games against the Rams to keep pace in the race for the play-offs.

A win against Leeds on Saturday would see them move level on points with their hosts, who are second in the Championship as things stand.

It will not be an easy feat for the South West side as the Whites looked close to their best against Brentford in midweek, with Kalvin Phillips pulling the strings on his return from suspension.

Recent history is not on the Robins side either. City have beaten Leeds just once since 1997 and have lost all three of their meetings since Marcelo Bielsa took charge last summer.

With that in mind, Johnson will need as many as his options available to him as possible to come away from West Yorkshire with a result.

They could be without key midfielder Korey Smith, however, as the 29-year-old was substituted late on against Derby.

City assistant manager Jamie McAllister has revealed that Smith, who has worn the captain’s armband since Josh Brownhill’s exit, picked up a niggle against the Rams.

He added: “We’re going to monitor him over the next 24 hours and see how he is tomorrow.”

Tomas Kalas reportedly suffered a setback in training ahead of the Derby clash but McAllister stated that the defender is progressing really well.

He stated: “He should be close to getting in the squad over the weekend or coming weeks.”

Looking further ahead, Marley Watkins remains a few weeks away from a return as his recovery from a calf injury is ongoing.

While striker Benik Afobe’s rehabilitation from his ligament injury more than four months ago seems to be progressing well, as his recent Instagram post would suggest.
