Team news

Owls: Reda Johnson (foot) will remain sidelined for the Leeds clash, as will midfield man Chris Lines who continues his recovery from a groin injury.

Elsewhere there are no new injury or suspension concerns, while manager Dave Jones is hopeful there will be no after effects from a bug that has been in the camp over the past few days.

Leeds: The club will make a late decision on midfield duo Michael Tongue and Rodolph Austin.

Tongue (shoulder) is rated as ‘touch and go’ by manager Neil Warnock while Austin (ankle) will be assessed upon his return from international duty with Jamaica.

David Norris and Paul Green should be available for selection having both recovered from their respective knee injuries.

View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: "If we can take what we do on the training ground to the main ground, everyone will be more than happy.

"You have to make your own luck and that's what we're trying to do."

Neil Warnock said: "Having lads like Norris and Green back is important for us because it lets me make changes if I need to.

"We've done reasonably well so far but I want us to keep things going with a good result. It’s a cracking game for both teams.”
