Daniel Farke has claimed he is not a fan of ‘too much’ rotation ahead of Leeds United’s trip to Hull City.

Farke was speaking in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday afternoon where he was questioned on whether he will be making any changes to his side.

Leeds face an extremely tight turnaround in matches this week with just two days of recovery between the 3-0 win at Millwall, and Wednesday’s match at Hull.

The Whites will then also host Watford at Elland Road on Saturday in what will be their third match in just six days, meaning it will be important to manage some players’ minutes.

That said, Farke will be keen to name as strong a side as possible with Hull set to provide another stern test, as they sit fifth in the table and unbeaten in five matches.

However, Farke has insisted he will not be looking to make wholesale changes as he is not a fan of rotating his starting XI between matches too much.

He said: “Lots of quality and players pushing. Not too concerned about this. Complete picture because players came back from internationals with lots of travelling and lots of minutes. Three games in six days and I am not a friend of rotation too much. Always thinking about two or three positions, but definitely not all 11 positions.”

Left-back is likely to be among the positions Farke will be considering rotation as it will be important to manage Sam Byram’s fitness based on his recent injury record.

Central midfield will almost certainly be one of them, too, with Farke already having stated on several occasions that 17-year-old Archie Gray cannot play every game.

The likes of Jaidon Anthony and Dan James will also be pushing for starts in attack after making positive impacts from the bench at Millwall.
