Leeds manager Simon Grayson will pick his side for their promotion decider against Bristol Rovers from the same squad as last week.

Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems as they look to secure the win that would guarantee a return to the Championship after a three-year absence.

Grayson said: "We've got everyone you would expect available. We're without Ben Parker, Paddy Kisnorbo, Jason Crowe and Aidy White but otherwise we have everyone to select from.

"We'll consider all our options and, as I always say, we will put a team out that we believe can do the job we want to do."

Teenage defender White sustained a calf strain last week and has been added to the injury list.

Rovers will welcome back top scorer Jo Kuffour.

The striker missed last week's crushing 3-0 defeat to League One champions Norwich with a rib injury. But he has trained all week and should be available at Elland Road.

Manager Paul Trollope will also welcome back Danny Coles after he completed a one-match ban while fellow defender Byron Anthony showed no ill-effects of a hip problem when he played the full 90 minutes against the Canaries.

Midfielder Dominic Blizzard has taken part in training following his recovery from a hamstring strain though a late decision will be made to see if he will feature.

Defender Steve Elliott remains sidelined with medial ligament damage as the Pirates seek a win which would guarantee a ninth-placed finish.
