Leeds could hand late fitness tests to leading goalscorer Ross McCormack and goalkeeper Paddy Kenny for the home game against Blackburn.

McCormack scored his 18th goal of the season in Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest, but was substituted as a precaution late on due to tight hamstrings while Kenny played the full 90 minutes despite sustaining an ankle injury in the opening exchanges.

Teenage midfielder Alex Mowatt, rested for the last two matches, is expected to return to the squad and Gboly Ariyibi is hoping to feature again after making his debut for the club at Forest.

Defender Sam Byram is pushing for his first start since December 7 after stepping off the bench in the last two matches.
