It's top versus bottom as Championship leaders Leeds host strugglers Barnsley in England's second-tier on Thursday evening. Can the Whites edge closer towards assuring themselves of Premier League promotion, or will Gerhard Struber's side stun their hosts?

Leeds United vs Barnsley Betting Tips

It wasn't the cleanest of strikes, but Pablo Hernandez's 89th-minute winner at Swansea was nonetheless a sweet moment for Leeds. On the counter-attack, as their hosts were visibly fatiguing, Luke Ayling's overlapping run and subsequent pass into the area was pounced on by the Spaniard.

It's easy to forget the 35-year-old spent two years at Swansea himself from 2012-14, though this goal – his eighth of the campaign – meant so much. Leeds have inched themselves ever closer to the Premier League promised land that has constantly eluded them over the years.

They need just four points from their remaining three fixtures to secure passage into England's top-flight for the first time in almost two decades.

It's not all positive though: key midfielder Kalvin Phillips (knee) will miss their last few games. Adam Forshaw (hip) remains still sidelined, though first-choice goalkeeper Kiko Casilla is available again after his eight-match suspension.

Does Marcelo Bielsa stick the Spaniard straight back into the side? Or keep faith with Lorient loanee ‘keeper Illan Meslier, who has kept successive clean sheets recently. There are plenty of questions that need answering, not least who provides the creative threat for Barnsley.

Top goalscorer Cauley Woodrow (14) is enduring an eight-match scoring drought, while Conor Chaplin (11) and assist-leader Alex Mowatt (eight) are inconsistent.

Leeds United vs Barnsley Correct Score Predictions

Leeds' last-gasp win over Swansea was a big morale boost and they'd love nothing more than to follow it up with a comfortable showing here. Barnsley are rooted bottom of the Championship and although they need a big performance, actually achieving it would come as a significant surprise at this stage of the campaign.
