Leeds have no fresh injury or suspension concerns as they look to get back to winning ways against Oldham.

Simon Grayson's men suffered their first home league defeat in 26 matches against Walsall last week before salvaging a 1-1 draw with Brighton at Elland Road on Saturday thanks to Robert Snodgrass' late leveller.

Patrick Kisnorbo played the full 90 minutes against the Seagulls as he made a successful return from an Achilles injury and the Australian defender should retain his place in the starting XI.

Ben Parker and Tresor Kandol returned to training last week following their injury lay-offs but the game will come too soon for the duo, who could feature for the reserves next week in an attempt to build up match fitness.

Snodgrass, who started on the bench against Brighton, is likely to return to the starting line-up, while Argentine striker Luciano Becchio is also set to start from the off.

Oldham boss Dave Penney could be missing Jim Goodwin and Chris Taylor.

On-loan Huddersfield midfielder Goodwin missed Saturday`s defeat at Colchester due to a thigh strain and and is rated as 50-50 to face Simon Grayson`s side.

Winger Taylor limped out of the Colchester match with a hip injury and Penney said: "We will have to see how the injury settles down and hope it is not too serious."

Andy Holdsworth is nursing a knee injury which is likely to keep him on the sidelines for the remainder of the season.

Rob Purdie and Jon Worthington also remain long-term injury absentees while Danny Whittaker missed Saturday`s defeat due to illness and could miss out again.
