Gradel missing for Cumbrians clash
Gradel made the final appearance of his current loan deal in Saturday's defeat at Exeter but manager Simon Grayson is exploring the possibility of bringing the 22-year-old back to Elland Road at least until the end of the season. Grayson has no new injury or suspension worries for the two-legged northern area final against the Cumbrians but could be tempted to make changes. Leeds have turned in successive below-par league performances, dropping five points in their last two fixtures against Wycombe and at Exeter, and Grayson might want to rest some of his players. Midfielder Jonny Howson and striker Mike Grella, who both started on the bench on Saturday, are among those pushing for a place in the starting line-up.
