Leeds boss Garry Monk has options for Wolves clash

Leeds boss Garry Monk may look to make changes against Wolves after rescuing a point at Newcastle.

Ronaldo Vieira did not feature at St James' Park due to illness, but may return in place of either Liam Bridcutt or Kalvin Phillips.

At the back, Monk brought Charlie Taylor off the bench to pep up his attack on the left-hand side and he may start in place of Gaetano Berardi if a more attacking outlook is desired.

The draw at Newcastle moved fifth-placed United on to 73 points, with Sheffield Wednesday one point further back in sixth and Fulham three adrift in seventh.

Helder Costa (ankle) is once again an injury doubt for Wolves manager Paul Lambert.

The Portuguese sat out the home defeat to Brighton and will be checked by Lambert ahead of the journey to West Yorkshire.

Andy Lonergan is again expected to feature in goal as Carl Ikeme is out with a hamstring injury.

Young striker Donovan Wilson made his debut as a substitute against Brighton after impressing with the under-23s and will look to feature at Leeds, but Joe Mason and Connor Ronan remain out with hernia and back injuries respectively.
