TEAM NEWS – Wigan Athletic vs. Leeds United: White unchanged with Eddie Nketiah on the bench and Jack Clarke absent

EDDIE NKETIAH is on the Leeds United bench for Saturday's Wigan Athletic Championship clash with the Whites meeting the same team that started last year's 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest.

Marcelo Bielsa revealed at a news conference on Thursday that the plan was for Leeds not to change and United to really align with the same XI, with new Arsenal striker Nketiah having to replace Ben Bamford moving forward again.

EFL rules state that teams can only name five loaners in their lineup, and Jack Clarke is left without a French goalkeeper under 20, Illana Meslier, on the bench.

Leeds United: Casilla, Douglas, White, Cooper, Dallas, Phillips, Forshaw, Klich, Hernandez, Harrison, Bamford. Sat: Meslier, Alioski, Nketiah, Costa, Berardi, Bogusz, Shackleton.

Wigan Athletic: Marshall; Byrne, Dunkley, Fox, Robinson; Morsy, Williams; Massey, Evans, Jacobs; Moore. Subscribe: Jones, Cyprus, Naismith, Macleod, Lowe, Enobakhare, Lang.

Referee: Madley.
