Scunthorpe manager Ian Baraclough is likely to name an unchanged team after the Iron came through the game at Watford unscathed and Baraclough is likely to name an unchanged team.

Rob Jones looks set to miss out again after breaking a bone in his hand in the victory at Preston, while Baraclough is likely to give goalkeeper Joe Murphy another week to recover from shoulder and groin problems. Tony Warner will continue between the sticks if the Irishman is left out.

Garry Thompson missed a reserve game in midweek through illness but is likely to feature.

Andy O'Brien is likely to make his debut at the heart of the Leeds defence after joining the club on a one-month loan deal from Bolton.

Whites boss Simon Grayson is also waiting to see if Sunderland will extend George McCartney's loan deal with the club, with Andy Hughes and Ben Parker standing by if the left-back does not return to Elland Road.

Richard Naylor has been ruled out due to the knee problem which forced him to miss the midweek defeat to Cardiff but summer signing Billy Paynter is expected to be included in the squad for the first time following his shin injury.

Goalkeeper Shane Higgs remains sidelined with a hamstring strain and winger Lloyd Sam is still struggling with a knock.
