Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has praised Reading’s creativity ahead of Saturday’s showdown at Elland Road.

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, Bielsa told the club website: “It will be the same squad as last week’s match against Bristol City.

“Reading are a team with very good players especially in the midfield.

"They have a creative style of play and they also have power in attack.

“I realise the wishes and desire from the people of Leeds, in our job we only focus on winning the next match.”

Royals boss Mark Bowen said that it will be a ‘privilege’ to pit his wits against the experienced Argentinian head coach.

"I came up against him once before when Wales played Argentina. I think we won that game!

"We had the privilege of seeing him work with his team as a coach in a different arena as an internaitonal manager as opposed to a club job.

"I'm very impressed with the way he goes about his work, he's got a rich history behind him. Pitting our wits against him is a privilege."
