Whites wait on trio

Leeds defenders Sam Byram and Stephen Warnock, plus midfielder Rudy Austin are injury doubts for the home game against Doncaster.

Warnock missed out in midweek due to an unspecified problem, while Byram and Austin both sustained knocks in the defeat at Bournemouth and are being monitored by boss Brian McDermott.

Goalkeeper Paddy Kenny could return to contention after being sidelined since early February with an ankle injury, but Jack Butland, on loan from Stoke, is expected to retain his place.

Winger Jimmy Kebe is still out due to the hamstring strain which has forced him to miss the last four matches.

Lucas Neill could make his Doncaster debut at Elland Road.

The veteran defender joined Rovers this week on loan from Sky Bet Championship rivals Watford and the 36-year-old is likely to be involved on Saturday. Should he be included from the start at centre-half it would allow Paul Quinn to revert to his usual right-back slot, meaning James Coppinger could lose his place in the team.

However, manager Paul Dickov, who has no new problems following the midweek defeat at Burnley, may still use Coppinger in his regular midfield role.

Gabriel Tamas has resumed training following surgery on his fractured cheekbone and may be back in contention next week when he is due to have a protective mask fitted.
