Leeds goalkeeper Shane Higgs and defender Ben Parker could return to the squad for the home clash with Millwall.

Higgs has watched most of the season from the sidelines due to a thigh injury and left-back Parker has been out since the opening day, first with a troublesome groin and more recently a knee problem.

Both players came through a midweek reserve-team outing unscathed and might make the substitutes' bench.

Striker Tresor Kandol could also return to the matchday squad, while winger Max Gradel staked his case for a bigger role with a hat-trick in the second string's 5-0 win over Lincoln.

Manager Simon Grayson, who has no new injury or suspension worries, must decide whether to stick with young defender Aidan White or opt for the more experienced Leigh Bromby in his starting line-up.

Gary McSheffrey and Neil Kilkenny are vying for one of four midfield places and veteran striker Paul Dickov is waiting for his first start as Leeds look to consolidate in second place by bouncing back from last week's defeat at Southampton.

Millwall expect record goalscorer Neil Harris to be fit.

Harris, who came on as a substitute during the second half of the 4-0 demolition of Charlton last Saturday, did not train in the early part of the week due to a back problem but should be fine to travel.

Fellow forward Gary Alexander is the only definite injury absentee as he continues his recovery from a heel operation.

Loan striker Jon Obika returned to parent club Tottenham to play in a friendly win over West Ham in midweek but has linked up with the Lions again.

Obika will start on the bench at Elland Road but he could find himself in line for a start soon with 16-goal Steve Morison one booking away from a two-match ban.
