Leeds V Fulham at Elland Road : Match Preview

Rob Green could return between the sticks for Leeds

Leeds goalkeeper Rob Green could be included in the squad to face Fulham at Elland Road.

Green has missed out so far due to a knee injury and it remains to be seen whether head coach Thomas Christiansen keeps faith with summer signing Felix Wiedwald.

Christiansen has no new injury problems following Saturday's goalless home draw with Preston, but full-back Gaetano Berardi (shoulder) and on-loan Everton centre-half Matthew Pennington (ankle) are still out.

Samu Saiz could make his first league start for the club and fellow midfielder Ronaldo Vieira is pushing for a recall.

Fulham will be without the suspended Tomas Kalas for the trip to West Yorkshire.

The on-loan defender was sent off inside the opening minute in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Reading. Tom Cairney, who scored against Leeds in both league meetings last season, is a doubt after pulling out of the line-up in Berkshire shortly before kick-off.

Denis Odoi came on at the Madejski Stadium as Slavisa Jokanovic shuffled his pack following the early dismissal and he will be pushing to start this time out.

Lucas Piazon's strike earned Fulham a share of the spoils and the midfielder will be hoping that is enough to earn him a spot in Jokanovic's side at Leeds.
