Leeds striker Luciano Becchio remains a doubt for his side's final home game of the season against Burnley.

The Argentinian has missed the last two games due to a hamstring strain and is battling to be fit for Leeds' last two matches.

Leeds will also be without Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan, who has been recalled by his parent club while winger Lloyd Sam is not expected to be included as he is still struggling with a knee injury.

Manager Simon Grayson has no new injury or suspension worries and is unlikely to make too many changes as his side look to keep their outside play-off hopes alive with only their second win in nine league matches.

Striker Davide Somma, a second-half replacement for Billy Paynter in Monday's 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, is hoping to return to the starting line-up, as is Sanchez Watt, a half-time substitute in place of on-loan Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore at Selhurst Park.

Burnley boss Eddie Howe could be without midfielder Dean Marney.

Marney sustained a knee injury against Middlesbrough earlier this month and Howe says that, despite making progress in his recovery, he may not play again this term.

Striker Martin Paterson played an hour for the reserves against Preston in midweek.

The Northern Ireland international has been out of action since February after suffering a recurrence of a thigh strain which has blighted his season.

However, he has progressed well in training and, having made a successful return to action in the reserves, could line up on the bench at Leeds.

Striker Charlie Austin remains sidelined for the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder.
