Leeds right-back Gaetano Berardi is back from a hamstring problem and could feature for the first time this season.

Midfielders Liam Bridcutt and Stuart Dallas are still out as Garry Monk’s side chase a fifth straight home win.

Wigan captain Craig Morgan is likely to remain on the bench after returning from injury against Burton.

However the Latics have several players on the treatment table, including Alex Gilbey (knee and ankle), Reece Burke (hernia) and Donervon Daniels (knee).

Match facts

  • Leeds have won one of their previous four home games against Wigan in all competitions, losing 2-0 last time out in December 2014.
  • The Latics have won four of six league games against the Whites, with each game won to nil (2-0, 3-0, 1-0 and 2-0).
