Stephen Dobbie is pushing to start for Swansea having come off the bench to bag the winner against Coventry in midweek.

The striker was rotated to the sidelines at the Ricoh Arena but, four minutes after coming on, kickstarted a move that saw several players hit the woodwork before then converting the only goal of the game to secure three more precious points.

Dobbie was one of three changes against the Sky Blues with Moore and Joe Allen also making way for Leon Britton, Darren Pratley and Craig Beattie.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is again now faced with a decision as to who he goes with from the off as second meets sixth at the Liberty Stadium.

Left-back Neil Taylor went through a handful of shirts on Tuesday as the club's medical staff struggled to stop bleeding from a head wound sustained early on but he completed the 90 minutes and should be fit.

Captain Garry Monk (knee) and midfielder Andrea Orlandi (thigh) again miss out.

Leeds will be without suspended midfielder Bradley Johnson.

Johnson sits out a one-game ban after receiving two yellow cards in the midweek draw with Barnsley and manager Simon Grayson must consider his options.

Lloyd Sam and Sanchez Watt will both be hoping to force their way into Grayson's starting line-up in Johnson's absence, while the only other absentee is right-back Paul Connolly, who is still nursing a hamstring problem.

Davide Somma is pushing for a return to the starting XI and fellow strikers Billy Paynter and Ross McCormack will also be bidding to play a bigger role at the Liberty Stadium.

Grayson has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side, unbeaten in their last seven league games, look to return to winning ways after successive draws.
