Leeds goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel will return to the squad for the home clash with Hull.

The 24-year-old missed the win at Coventry after becoming a father for the first time, but he could return to the starting line-up in place of on-loan Jason Brown, who leapfrogged Shane Higgs into the side on Saturday due to the latter's recent injury.

Max Gradel and midfield partner Amdy Faye both missed training on Monday after picking up knocks at Coventry.

Manager Simon Grayson revealed that "one or two other players" have been struggling with illness.

Skipper Richard Naylor (knee) and Sanchez Watt (hamstring) remain sidelined, while Grayson must decide whether to stick with Neill Collins alongside on-loan Andy O'Brien at the heart of defence, or recall Alex Bruce.

Hull manager Nigel Pearson will name his starting line-up from an unchanged squad for the clash at Leeds.

Pearson, whose side are above the bottom three only on goal difference, has no new injury or suspension problems following Saturday's home defeat to local rivals Scunthorpe.

Key midfielder Jimmy Bullard is still in rehabilitation following his latest knee injury and Robert Koren has not shaken off the hamstring injury which has forced him to miss the last two games.

Striker Caleb Folan (leg) and defender Paul McShane (thigh) are still ruled out.

John Bostock, on loan from Tottenham, and player/coach Nick Barmby could be recalled to the starting line-up as the Tigers chase their first league win since a 2-0 victory at Norwich at the end of September - eight matches ago.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
