Leeds United failed to make it two wins from two in the Championship on Saturday as they were held to a draw by Nottingham Forest at Elland Road.
And before they get the chance to bounce-back in the second-tier, they must first face Salford City in the League Cup first-round.
Salford were promoted from the conference to League Two last season after just one season in the fifth-tier of English football as they continue to march onwards and upwards, bankrolled by a host of Manchester United legends.
Bielsa joking about his starting line-up – saying he got advice last season not to name it in public and doesn't know what to do for the best, but he's not naming it this time. #lufc

In his pre-match press conference on Monday, Bielsa dropped hints over what his team will look like but stopped short of revealing his XI as he did frequently last season – revealing he has taken on advice not to do so.
Leeds fans love their manager, that is obvious, but one annoyance was his XI-revealing ways, so they were very happy to hear him put an end to this…
Good man don't tell em nothing

Great news. That was my only criticism of the Don Bielsa last season. Cards close to the chest is best
