Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa has reported no new injuries following last week’s 1-0 win at Everton and is expected to choose from an unchanged squad.
Midfielders Pablo Hernandez (muscle strain) and Jamie Shackleton (thigh) are continuing to work their way back to full fitness and unlikely to be in contention.
Bielsa confirmed defender Diego Llorente has recovered from a groin injury but will feature for the Under-23s before being considered for his belated club debut.
