Leeds United
ended a five match winless run on the weekend, with Mirco Antenucci scoring twice in a 2-1 victory over bottom side, Bolton Wanderers.

Academy graduate Lewie Coyle was stretchered off in the match, with Leeds also evaluating injuries to Souleymane Doukara, Scott Wootton and Liam Cooper. As a result, Gaetano Berardi could feature at right-back alongside Sol Bamba and Giuseppe Bellusci.

The Whites have a strong midfield, including the likes of former Brentford man Toumani Diagouraga, Sunderland loanee Liam Bridcutt, and Lewis Cook, who will likely feature at the top of a diamond. Meanwhile, New Zealand international Chris Wood could return to feature after a seven-match injury lay-off.

CLUB CONNECTIONS



Lee Peltier
will likely miss out on a chance to play against his former side this evening, having picked up a foot injury in the Bluebirds Severnside Derby victory on Saturday.

The two sides have shared several players over the years, including Welsh footballing legend John Charles and front men Robbie Fowler, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Ross McCormack.

Tom Adeyemi has played twenty-three matches and scored twice on loan at Leeds this season, but will be ineligible for selection this evening.
