The Championship teams will return to action for the first time since 2019/20 following Leeds’ relegation.

Leeds endured a difficult return to the second division

The Whites were among the favorites to secure an immediate return to the Premier League, but have won just one of their first five matches.

Daniel Farke’s men languish in 15th with six points, with Millwall three places above despite having accumulated just one more point.

The Lions, who finished just outside the play-offs last season, have not lost at home to Leeds since March 2012.
