Manager Simon Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems ahead of Leeds` home game against Leyton Orient.

Skipper Richard Naylor (calf) and midfielder Bradley Johnson (thigh) are likely to remain out after both players missed Saturday's win at Brighton.

Lubo Michalik partnered Patrick Kisnorbo at the heart of defence and midfielder Neil Kilkenny turned in a man-of-the-match display on his first start of the season.

Striker Tresor Kandol returns to contention following a three-game ban, while long-term casualties Luciano Becchio and Ben Parker continue with their rehabilitation following ankle and hip injuries respectively.

Leeds, who have a game in hand on all their promotion rivals, are hoping to extend their six-point lead at the top of the table.

Orient manager Geraint Williams hopes to have a fully-fit squad available.

The Os got back to winning ways with a 2-1 success over Tranmere on Saturday and Williams has reported no major injury problems.

"We've just got a couple of niggles and a couple of players have sat out training, and we'll have to wait and see if they come through," he said.

Experienced striker Scott McGleish will keep his place in attack after scoring both goals at the weekend.

Midfielders Adam Chambers and Jason Demetriou will hope to be involved having been unused substitutes against Rovers.

Williams has kept faith with goalkeeper Glenn Morris recently despite the return to fitness of Jamie Jones following a head injury.
