Since Neil Redfearn returned to the club, Leeds’s form has improved and they have lost just one of their last four matches.

Leeds stunned the league leaders Derby County last week at Elland Road, winning comfortably 2-0, in the wake of the controversy concerning club’s owner Massimo Cellino.

Everything he’s done is in the best interests of the club. Hand on heart, I honestly believe it.

We’re fortunate to have an owner who’s football daft and who loves the club.

…He’s spoken about it briefly but he doesn’t seem too concerned, which is good.

I’ve mainly just been talking to him about the side and how we can make that better.

Both goals came from Mirco Antenucci as Leeds put a five point cushion between them and the drop zone.

Leeds have won three of the last five meetings against Ipswich Town, including last season’s match at Portman Road.

Prior to the recent run of games, Ipswich had gone nine unbeaten against Leeds, a run stretching back to when the two sides where in the Premier League.

Team news

Hunt is ineligible to face his parent club, although would have probably been on the bench, despite last week’s debut heroics.

His brother Steven Hunt will start though, with the only change for Ipswich likely to see Christophe Berra return from suspension.

Berra will take the place of Tommy Smith in defence, meaning the Arsenal target Tyrone Mings will feature.

Leeds could name the same side that beat Derby County, with the impressive Antenucci continuing.

The likes of Jason Pearce and Rudolph Austin have been on the bench in recent weeks, with the young pair of Liam Cooper and Lewis Cook featuring.

Ipswich: Bialkowski, Parr, Chambers, Berra, Mings, Skuse, Tabb, Hunt, Anderson, McGoldrick, Murphy
Leeds: Silvestri, Byram, Bellusci, Cooper, Warnock, Bianchi, Cook, Mowatt, Tavares, Antenucci, Doukara
