The Championship returns with a bang this weekend as Leeds United host Sheffield United tonight in what is set to be a crackling Yorkshire derby.
The Whites have enjoyed big games with Sheffield Wednesday in recent years and now they get to face-off against their Steel City rivals for the first time in a while in the league. Both are going well in the Championship this season, too, and so we should be in for a feisty affair as both look to boost their promotion challenges with three points.
Anticipation is already building ahead of the game at Elland Road, then, and Whites fans will be looking to create some proper noise come kick-off for their players to excel in. The stars that get picked need to be up for this one, then, and it looks as though Ezgjan Alioski is ready to go with him posting this pumped up message on Twitter:

Alioski has been good this season but he has had it levelled at him at times that he is not physical enough. He’ll need to shake that tag in this game, then, because we could be set for a good old fashioned blood and thunder clash between the pair.
Leeds really need to win this game to build on the Bristol City win and get themselves right back into the promotion mix.
Sheffield United are a good side, of course, but if the likes of Alioski turn up and perform then the Whites should get the three points.
Thoughts, Leeds fans? Let us know below!
