Leeds V Charlton - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

As you were for Leeds Leeds manager Neil Warnock has no major new selection worries for his side's home game with Charlton. Midfielder Rudy Austin was withdrawn at half-time in Friday night's derby draw at Sheffield Wednesday following his midweek exertions with Jamaica and will be monitored, but Warnock has several options with David Norris (thigh) and Paul Green (knee) both back in the squad following long-term injury. Winger Ryan Hall, who joined Leeds on loan from Southend last week with a view to a permanent deal in January, is hoping to feature at some stage, while forwards Luke Varney and Andy Gray, plus defender Adam Drury are all pushing for recalls. Striker Ross McCormack remains sidelined with an ankle injury as Leeds chase a fourth straight home win and their fifth in seven matches. Charlton are likely to be without Ricardo Fuller. The striker suffered a hamstring injury during the Addicks' 1-0 defeat to Barnsley and is a major doubt for the trip to Yorkshire. Fuller's injury meant Chris Powell's team played the last 10 minutes with a numerical disadvantage as all three substitutes had been used, but all the changes were tactical so the Addicks do not have any other new problems. They remain without Matt Taylor, who has a foot injury, but he could be back in contention at the weekend. But Yann Kermorgant and Rhoys Wiggins are more long-term absentees. Kermorgant is not expected back until the new year as he sits out with an ankle injury while Wiggins is expected back in the next month from his foot problem.
