Leeds defender Giuseppe Bellusci will miss the home game against Fulham through suspension as he starts a two-game ban after receiving his 10th booking of the season in Saturday's FA Cup defeat at Watford.

Fellow centre-half Liam Cooper is hoping to be fit after missing out at the weekend due to a minor injury, but if he misses out head coach Steve Evans will be short at the back.

Scott Wootton could switch from right-back to central defence with Gaetano Berardi (ankle) closing in on a return after a two-month injury lay-off.

Striker Chris Wood remains sidelined due to the hamstring injury that has kept him out of the last four matches.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has no fresh injury or suspension worries.

The Cottagers boss admitted that he got his team line-up wrong in the first half of their 3-0 win against Charlton at the weekend and is likely to shake up his starting 11.

Chris Baird and Michael Madl are expected to start at Elland Road after coming off the bench against the Addicks, while Dan Burn is available after overcoming a hamstring injury.

Cauley Woodrow (broken metatarsal) and Lasse Christensen (hamstring) are both still unavailable.
