Follow live coverage as Leeds United face Brentford in the Premier League today.

Leeds have perhaps not had the results their performances have warranted this season, and Jesse Marsch’s side sit 16th in the table as a result - only outside the bottom three on goal difference. They are five without a win in the top flight and really need a positive outcome from this game, but visitors Brentford have been in excellent form.

The Bees have won four of their last five and sit ninth ahead of kick-off - they could end the day as high as sixth if results go their way.

It's stalemate between Leeds and Brentford at Elland Road. The Whites will be disappointed not to have found a breakthrough goal. They were on top for most of the game, especially in the second half, but lacked that killer finish. The Bees proved hard to beat though, and you can't begrudge them the draw.
