Leeds are likely to start Luke Ayling at right-back after he joined from Bristol City on Thursday.
Ayling will replace Gaetano Berardi, who suffered a hamstring injury in Leeds’ 3-0 defeat by QPR in their first game under new head coach Garry Monk.
Che Adams could make his Birmingham City debut after he joined from Sheffield United for a £1.5m fee.
Tomasz Kuszczak, Clayton Donaldson and Diego Fabbrini are likely to play after missing the EFL Cup loss to Oxford.
BBC Radio Leeds commentator Adam Pope:
“United head coach Garry Monk says he will have no hesitation giving a debut to right-back Luke Ayling after he signed on a three-year deal from Bristol City on Thursday.
“Defender Gaetano Berardi remains out with a hamstring injury whilst goalkeeper Marco Silvestri is sidelined with a knee problem.
“United could give home senior debuts to as many as 10 players tomorrow, including Pablo Hernandez. The Spaniard, on loan from Al-Arabi, is the marquee signing of the summer and was the man of the match in the midweek EFL Cup victory at Fleetwood Town.”
