No new injury worries for Leeds ahead of clash with Sheffield Wednesday

Leeds head coach Garry Monk is expected to choose from an unchanged squad for the visit of promotion rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Right-back Lewie Coyle, not included in the squad for last week's draw at Ipswich, is unavailable due to a foot injury sustained in training.

Left-back Charlie Taylor, out since mid-December with an Achilles injury, is not ready for match action after returning to full training this week.

Otherwise, Monk has no new injury or suspension worries, while skipper Liam Bridcutt, Kemar Roofe and Alfonso Pedraza are among those pushing for recalls.

Wednesday defender Morgan Fox remains a big doubt after missing the midweek home defeat to Brentford due to an ankle injury.

Fellow defender Tom Lees (knee) is not expected to feature against his former club after missing the last five matches and striker Gary Hooper (thigh) remains sidelined.

Head coach Carlos Carvalhal, who has no new injury concerns, must decide whether to recall winger Callum McManaman, whose last seven appearances have all come off the substitutes' bench.

The Owls, level on points with fifth-placed Leeds, will climb above their Yorkshire rivals in the table with victory.
