An independent tribunal to consider the validity of a 15-point penalty imposed on Leeds by the Football League gets under way behind closed doors in London on Wednesday.
Leeds´ lawyers will attempt to convince a three-man panel that the League acted outside its jurisdiction when docking the points at the start of this season as punishment for allegedly breaking competition rules on insolvency.

If the sanction is overturned and Leeds are given all their points back, the consequences in Coca-Cola League One could be far-reaching.
