Leeds manager Simon Grayson could field an unchanged side for the home clash with Brentford.

Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make too many changes from the side that drew 2-2 at Huddersfield last week.

Left-back Ben Parker has been dealt another injury blow after sustaining a knee injury in training, which kept him out of a reserve-team game this week.

Parker has made only one appearance for Leeds this season, on the opening day, and has been struggling to regain full fitness following surgery to resolve a groin problem.

Midfield pair Bradley Johnson and Neil Kilkenny are pressing for recalls after starting on the substitutes' bench last week.

Goalkeeper Shane Higgs is not yet ready to return from a long-term thigh injury.

Brentford hope to welcome back defender Ryan Dickson for the trip.

The left-back has been sidelined for three weeks with a knee injury after a training-ground collision with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Dickson has only missed one game as Brentford's last two matches were postponed, and he was due to resume full training on Thursday.

Midfielder Marcus Bean is fully fit after recovering from a knee injury and could return to the starting line-up.

Ben Strevens and Charlie MacDonald look set to start in attack after young striker John Akinde returned to Bristol City after an unsuccessful loan spell.

Goalkeeper Nikki Bull remains the only long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from last year's shoulder operation.
