Daniel James was named in the starting line up for Leeds

Watford host Leeds in the Sky Bet Championship in the late kick off on Good Friday.

Leeds and Leicester go into the weekend level on points, and one above Ipswich.

Daniel Farke boasts an impressive record for promotion to the top flight, having managed to do so twice when manager of Norwich.
