Leeds United have not one, but two fixtures tonight as Uwe Rosler looks to give his squad a more intensive workout before they fly to Austria next week.

The Whites will be sending two sides to York and Tadcaster as they aim to improve on what was a less than impressive performance at Harrogate last time out.

Uwe Rosler has confirmed that “six or seven” first-team players will feature at @TadcasterAlbion tomorrow night (7pm). #lufc

New signing Tom Adeyemi will not appear for either team as he looks to improve his fitness ahead of United’s trip to the continent.

Competition for places is heating up, especially in attack. Rosler has a number of options in striking postions with last season’s top scorer Mirco Antenucci, Billy Sharp, Steve Morrison, Souleymane Doukara, Steve Morison and new signings Lee Erwin and Chris Wood all fighting to catch the eye of their new boss.
