But the 27-goal forward may have to exercise patience after starting on the substitutes' bench in the midweek win at Carlisle, where Luciano Becchio and Max Gradel struck up an impressive partnership.

Manager Simon Grayson will be reluctant to make changes after Leeds eased to a 3-1 win and moved back into the second automatic promotion spot, meaning more frustration for Beckford.

Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems as Leeds target a fourth straight league win to keep themselves in front of Millwall, Charlton and Swindon in the race for a top-two finish.

Defender Ben Parker is itching to feature after a season blighted by groin and knee injuries, Gary McSheffrey, on loan from Birmingham, staked his claim while playing for the reserves in midweek and on-loan pair Shane Lowry (Aston Villa) and Sanchez Watt (Arsenal) are also available.
