Leeds United will get no helping hand from Maik Taylor

Leeds will find a familiar face barring their progress at Millwall tomorrow.

Neil Warnock’s men want an immediate pick-me-up from the humiliating 7-3 home loss to Nottingham Forest.

But they will have to get past Maik Taylor first.

The former Northern Ireland keeper left Elland Road for the Lions last week on loan until the end of the season.

And under the terms of the agreement, Taylor is eligible to play against his parent club. He said: “That will be interesting. I’m sure (losing to Forest) was just a blip because Leeds had been going great guns until then.”

Warnock has warned his side to expect another huge test and will look closely at their response from Tuesday as he plots ahead for the next campaign.

He said: “To come off the back of a result so bad and then go to the Den and play against a side who’ll be flying – that will show me who wants to be here next season.

“I’ll make changes if I can. I’d like to give one or two an opportunity. We’re a bit thin on the ground when it comes to players and some of them look shattered.”

Alex Bruce is available after injury and played in a behind-closed-doors game with the Bantams at Thorp Arch on Wednesday. City won 1-0, with Guy Branston heading the only goal from Chris Mitchell’s cross.
