Leeds striker Ross McCormack is in line for a shock return when they visit Millwall on Sunday.
McCormack, who was ruled out for at least eight weeks with an ankle injury suffered during their 2-1 defeat at Cardiff on September 15, is back ahead of schedule to boost Neil Warnock's depleted squad.
It had been feared the 26-year-old would require surgery initially and Warnock admitted his surprise at the Scotsman's condition after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
"The good news is that Ross has trained this week and he's looked well," he told the club's official website. "I don't want to push him but I might have to put him on the bench on Sunday if he comes through this week alright.
"Which will be a massive lift because we've missed Ross and what he does in a game, he changes games. To lose him so early on in the season was a major blow, we have missed him.
"But I've not seen him look as well if I'm been honest. He's really worked hard and put in a shift while he's been injured."
