Byram in Leeds frame

Leeds defender Sam Byram could return to the starting line-up against Bournemouth.

Byram started Saturday's defeat at Millwall on the bench after recently returning from a long-term hip injury and appeared in the second half on the right side of midfield.

Manager Brian McDermott has no new injury or suspension problems, but could make one or two other changes as his side look to end a run of four straight defeats. Defenders Tom Lees and Aidy White are pushing for recalls to the squad

Lee Peltier returned to the back four at the weekend following a groin injury and should continue, while teenage midfielder Alex Mowatt is also hoping to retain his place after making his league debut at Millwall.

Bournemouth will be without midfielder Richard Hughes.

The 34-year-old former Portsmouth man saw red in the 3-1 home defeat to Blackburn which means he will sit out the trip to Leeds along with a number of players.

Matt Ritchie's thigh injury still keeps him out along with a suspected knee problem which forced Welsh midfielder Shaun MacDonald off on Saturday while Charlie Daniels is also sidelined.

Norwich loanee Andrew Surman and fellow midfielder Harry Arter are fighting to be fit but Ian Harte looks set to be involved in the squad to face his former club.
