West Bromwich Albion are back in Sky Bet Championship action on Friday night as they make the trip up to Elland Road where they'll face Leeds United (ko 8pm). 

The Baggies secured their first victory of the new season last weekend, defeating Swansea City 3-2 at The Hawthorns. 

Leeds United, who were relegated from the Premier League last term, have taken one point from a possible six so far in the second tier and suffered a last-gasp defeat at Birmingham City in their most recent fixture. 

Friday's clash under the lights will be the first meeting between the two teams since May 2021.

The opponents 

Leeds United have had an uncomfortable start to life back in the Sky Bet Championship after a three-year stint in the Premier League.

The Whites, who finished 19th in the top tier last term, needed a 90th-minute equaliser to grab a point at home to Cardiff City on the opening weekend before conceding a 90th-minute penalty in last Saturday's 1-0 loss at Birmingham City.

New boss Daniel Farke will be challenging his players to secure a first league victory of the campaign when the Baggies come to town on Friday night, and the 46-year-old German is a man who knows how to win in this division. 

He led one of his previous clubs Norwich City to two Championship titles in 2018/19 and then 2020/21, and the expectation this time around at his current club will be to mount a serious charge towards securing promotion back to the top flight at the first time of asking. 

Leeds are one of the sides heavily tipped to achieve success this season and they'll be hoping to kick-start their campaign against Carlos Corberán's men.  

Leeds will want to earn their maiden win of the new campaign

One to remember 

The Baggies' last win at Elland Road came in the Championship in January 2007.

Jonathan Greening and Diomansy Kamara (2) were on target for the visitors in a 3-2 triumph. 

Supporters can watch Albion's goals from that afternoon below.
