League Two side Cambridge are hopeful Brad Halliday and George Maris (both knocks) will feature for them in Monday’s FA Cup tie against Leeds.

They will be without midfielder Keith Keane, while forward Barry Corr and winger Medy Elito have knee injuries.

Leeds midfielder Eunan O’Kane could return after being out for seven matches with a groin strain.

Defender Charlie Taylor (Achilles) is out so Gaetano Berardi is expected to continue at left-back.
