Fulham v Leeds United preview

The Venezuela international missed Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Sheffield Wednesday through suspension following his red card in the recent 5-1 defeat by Bournemouth.
Winger Alex Kacaniklic will be assessed after missing the last two matches while midfielders Lasse Vigen Christensen (hamstring) and George Williams (cruciate) are set to miss out.
Matt Smith, who has scored two goals in two starts since returning from a loan spell with Bristol City, could line up alongside fellow former Leeds striker Ross McCormack in attack.
Leeds head coach Neil Redfearn has no major new injury or suspension worries, but midfield pair Rudy Austin (thigh) and Sam Byram (foot) are set to miss out again.
Redfearn has said he wants to take a look at some more academy players, and midfielder Kalvin Phillips and forward Lewis Walters, both on the bench in recent games, are pushing for their first-team debuts.
January signing Granddi N’Goyi is edging closer to his first appearance following a thigh injury but is more likely to be in contention for his debut at Blackpool on Saturday.
Defender Liam Cooper, fit again after a hip problem, and striker Mirco Antenucci are both in contention to return to the starting line-up.
