Leeds United will look to end an unforgettable season on yet another high on Wednesday night, as they host Charlton Athletic at Elland Road.
Having already secured promotion to the Premier League as champions of the Championship this season, there is little left for the Whites to play for this season, other than momentum going into the new campaign.
By contrast, Charlton are still battling to avoid relegation from the Championship this season, and go into this final game of the season only outside the relegation zone on goal difference.
Speaking ahead of the game, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa said he would name a strong side for the match in order to protect the integrity of the competition, and he has done just that, with Illan Meslier, Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Mateusz Klich, Jack Harrison and Patrick Bamford all returning to the starting lineup after sitting out Sunday’s win at Derby, while Kiko Casilla is absent from the matchday squad completely.
Who will win tonight?
Taking to Twitter to react to that team news, plenty of Leeds fans were keen to voice their opinion on their side’s matchday squad for the final time in the campaign, and here, we’ve taken a look at what some of them had to say.
Only comment is Poveda unlucky not to start

That’s Casilla gone then? Hopefully Poveda gets a decent run out too

Would’ve liked Shackleton and Poveda to start but happy to see Meslier and Struijk

Well Bielsa is not messing about is he. First Team out tonight. Maybe wrap it up for half time then put the likes of Poveda and Bogus on second half.

Illan deserves it. He helped Leeds get 5 clean sheets in 8 games.
