Player to Watch – Karl Darlow

First-choice Leeds keeper Ilan Meslier was sent off for a moment of madness against Preston last time out and the Frenchman’s ban will give Karl Darlow a rare opportunity to start between the sticks on Friday. The 33-year-old will hope to make a positive impact on what will be a rare appearance.
