Leeds United vs Preston North End: What time is kick off, and what TV channel is Championship match on?

Chris Wood opened his account as Leeds picked up three points against Championship new-boys Bolton.

The hosts finished the game strongly but they could not find an equaliser as Leeds held on.

Daniel Johnson’s late penalty secured Preston a first opening-day win since 2008 as they beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Deepdale.

When is Leeds vs Preston?

The match kicks off at 3pm on Saturday August 12, at Elland Road.

In April, Leeds won this fixture at Elland Road 3-0 and cemented their place in the play-offs. Only one game has been played but Leeds currently sit third and Preston seventh place in the table.

What’s the latest team news?

The only downside from Sunday’s victory for Leeds fans will be the concern over injured duo Gaetano Berardi and Matthew Pennington, who were both forced off during the first-half.

Left-back Berardi sustained a dislocated shoulder and centre-back Pennington an ankle injury. Both are doubtful for the fixture.

Preston came through their opener unscathed.

Meanwhile, Manchester United youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has joined Leeds on a season-long loan deal.

The defender has been unable to force his way into Jose Mourinho’s plans and failed to impress at Wolves last season.
