The inexperienced Ben Wilson has conceded six goals in successive defeats to Norwich and Preston, and Bluebirds boss Paul Trollope says he “has a decision” on whether to stick with the youngster, with new signings Ben Amos and Brian Murphy waiting in the wings.

Peter Whittingham has been a surprise omission for the last two matches and could return in midfield, but injured duo Joe Bennett and Stuart O’Keefe remain absent.

Trollope is mulling over whether to change his 5-3-2 formation with Cardiff having dropped into the bottom three in midweek and full-back Jazz Richards might be recalled.

Leeds skipper Liam Bridcutt hopes to shake off a foot injury in time to lead his side and Kemar Roofe is expected to return to contention.

Midfielder Bridcutt was forced out of the midweek win against Blackburn after taking a knock, while forward Roofe missed out due to a calf strain.

Head coach Garry Monk has no other new injury or suspension worries but defender Gaetano Berardi is still working his way back from a hamstring injury.

Striker Chris Wood is pushing for a recall to the starting line-up after scoring on Tuesday night as are centre-half Liam Cooper and midfield pair Alex Mowatt and Kalvin Phillips.
