Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford could be handed a recall to the starting line-up for the crucial clash against MK Dons.

The 28-goal forward has started the last two games on the bench but could replace Max Gradel in attack as manager Simon Grayson chases a win that will push United closer to automatic promotion.

Midfielder Bradley Johnson is available after a two-match suspension but is likely to start on the bench while defender Ben Parker could make his first start since the opening day of the season after a long-term injury.

If Parker comes in then Leigh Bromby could miss out while on-loan Arsenal winger Sanchez Watt is pushing for a start after impressing as a substitute against Gillingham last weekend.

MK Dons have an alarming injury list ahead of the trip.

Outgoing manager Paul Ince had just seven fit outfield players in training on Thursday and is struggling to fill a squad to take to Elland Road.

Striker Aaron Wilbraham scored twice during last weekend's 3-2 defeat at home to Wycombe but aggravated a calf problem and will be given a fitness test on Friday along with Jermaine Easter, who missed that defeat with a thigh injury and is also a doubt.

Winger Luke Chadwick has gone for an x-ray on the foot he injured against Wycombe and could miss out while defender Danny Woodards pulled his hamstring in the same game and is definitely sidelined.

Midfielder Mark Carrington lasted just 10 minutes of a dismal afternoon for the club before coming off with a back injury and is out while veteran defender Darren Powell pulled his groin in the warm-up.

Lewis Gobern could return from a hamstring injury and Peter Leven is back from suspension but Stephen Gleeson (knee) and Sean O'Hanlon (enforced break) are absent.
