Leeds' new signing Marius Zaliukas could make his first appearance for the club against Yeovil.

The Lithuania international, a free agent following his release from Hearts in the summer, has signed until the end of the season and is expected to be included in Brian McDermott's squad.

But Leeds could be without Sam Byram, who has only recently returned from a long-term hip injury. The right-back is struggling with a thigh problem and may require a late fitness test.

Left-back Stephen Warnock sustained a knock in training and is also doubtful, while new loan signing Dexter Blackstock is hoping to make his home debut after stepping off the bench to score in last week's defeat at Huddersfield.

Yeovil are waiting on the fitness of defender Dan Seaborne.

The Glovers make the long trip in high spirits after a memorable 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest last weekend but they may have to manage without the former Southampton centre-back who suffered a problem in a reserve match with Torquay on Tuesday.

"He didn't train on Thursday morning," manager Gary Johnson revealed. "It was quite a hefty knock so we will have to wait and see how he came out of that. It will not keep him out for long but it might keep him out of the weekend."

Elsewhere, Johnson is unlikely to make too many changes as they search for back-to-back victories for the first time this season.
