TEAM NEWS

Cardiff will be without Lee Peltier, although a scan shows he has suffered bruising and not a broken foot.

Sean Morrison will again deputise in defence while Peter Whittingham and Fabio da Silva could be included.

Leeds head coach Steve Evans may have Chris Wood available after seven games out with a hamstring problem.

But Lewie Coyle, stretchered off on Saturday, will not feature and Evans will wait on Liam Cooper, Souleymane Doukara and Scott Wootton.
