Leeds United skipper Liam Bridcutt is hoping to return after missing the last two games with a foot injury.

Gaetano Berardi remains sidelined, but is closing in on a return to action after a hamstring problem.

Ipswich forward Luke Varney picked up a hamstring injury this week and could be unavailable for the game against his former club.

Teddy Bishop sustained a nose injury in the goalless draw against Aston Villa last weekend and is also a doubt.
