The date of the fixture has also been confirmed for Thursday 13th August, 7.45pm kick off.

Less than 35 miles apart, this Yorkshire derby will see two former Manchester City team mates Paul Dickov and Uwe Rosler go head-to-head as managers. 

Rovers boss Dickov said: “I’m looking forward to going head-to-head with Uwe who is an old friend of mine. He is a great guy and our lads even play in the same school team together."

Dickov's side last faced Leeds United at Elland Road in the 2013/14 Championship season, winning the match 2-1 with goals from David Cotterill and Billy Sharp.

Leeds' fixture at Reading has now moved to Sunday, 16th August (3pm) due to the cup-tie being played on Thursday.
