Leeds United are set to take just short of 7,000 fans to Fulham tonight, for their clash in the Sky Bet Championship, reports reliable journalist Lee Sobot.
After selling out their away stand allocation, fans have opted to buy tickets in the mixed area of Craven Cottage, to support their side.
Garry Monk’s side are frequently followed by masses of support away from home, with Leeds taking over 3,000 fans to Birmingham City on Friday night, along with selling out their allocation at Blackburn Rovers last month.
So basically because of the mixed area at Fulham there's talk of 6,000 – 7,000 #lufc fans heading to London on a Tuesday night.

Tonight’s clash will have a significant impact on the race for the Play-Offs, with both sides looking to finish in the top-six.
Monk’s side are currently fourth in the Championship, and have an eight-point cushion over Slavisa Jokanovic’s Fulham side, who sit seventh.
Victory for Leeds tonight will see them open up an 11-point gap to Fulham, putting themselves in a commanding position to secure a place in May’s Play-Offs.
