TEAM NEWS

Leeds head coach Steve Evans must decide whether to restore Chris Wood to the starting line-up after his return from a hamstring injury.

His other options are Mirco Antenucci, who has scored four goals in three games and Souleymane Doukara, who was on target in a recent win at Cardiff.

Huddersfield loan signing Rajiv van La Parra may make his debut and Philip Billing has completed a three-game ban.

However, midfielder Kyle Dempsey and forward Elvis Manu won’t be available.
