New-boy McCartney set to start for Leeds
Leeds' latest loan signing George McCartney could go straight into the starting line-up for the Yorkshire derby with Sheffield United.
The 29-year-old defender, who will stay for an initial month at Elland Road, could replace Fede Bessone at left-back. Bessone missed last week's draw at Doncaster and teenager Aidy White stepped in, so manager Simon Grayson is left with a selection headache ahead of the third straight local derby.
He must also decide whether to recall skipper Richard Naylor, who made way for the Alex Bruce at the Keepmoat Stadium, while winger Robert Snodgrass is hoping to make his first start of the season after coming off the bench in the second half at Doncaster.
Davide Somma is likely to retain his place up front after an impressive first full league appearance last week, but Grayson has plenty of options with Ross McCormack, Luciano Becchio, Sanchez Watt and Lloyd Sam all vying for starts.
