Duff dilemma for Clarets
Burnley defender Michael Duff could return against Leeds after recovering from a knee injury which has kept him out for two months.
A late decision will be made on whether Duff is fit enough to take his place in the squad, with the player only returning to full training this week.
Full-back Brian Easton played a full 90 minutes in the 3-1 loss at Bristol City despite a hip injury and will feature again while Martin Paterson is close to a comeback following a thigh injury.
Manager Eddie Howe is still without goalkeeper Brian Jensen (groin) and striker Danny Ings (knee) but could bring in some loan deals to manage his small squad.
Howe is hoping the Clarets can turn their fortunes around following successive defeats to Bristol City and Leicester.
Leeds defenders Tom Lees and Darren O'Dea are expected to return to the squad.
Lees missed the win at Leicester last time out due to suspension while fellow centre-half O'Dea was sidelined through concussion.
Patrick Kisnorbo and Andy O'Brien started alongside each other at the Walkers Stadium and manager Simon Grayson must decide whether to make further changes to his defence.
O'Dea was an unused substitute alongside striker Andy Keogh as the Republic of Ireland qualified for the Euro 2012 finals in midweek.
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is expected to continue after joining on loan from Reading in time to make his debut at Leicester. Andy Lonergan is still recovering from a broken finger so teenager Alex Cairns will provide back-up on the bench.
Luciano Becchio and Ramon Nunez kept up the pressure on first-choice strikers Ross McCormack and Keogh by scoring a goal each in a midweek friendly win over Chelsea.
Snodgrass at the double
A second-half double from Robert Snodgrass secured Leeds an unlikely 2-1 victory that cranks up the pressure on Burnley boss Eddie Howe.
Simon Grayson's men were looking to move into the play-off places by claiming all three points, but their quest looked set to prove unsuccessful as the Clarets dominated for large periods.
Howe's side were set on their way early on as Jay Rodriguez nodded home.
But despite being under the cosh for much of the clash, the visitors equalised courtesy of Snodgrass's third goal of the season.
And the Scotland international added another in the 88th minute to ensure Leeds made it back-to-back victories.
In contrast, Burnley's third successive loss leaves Howe's position increasingly precarious.
Seemingly refreshed by the recent international break, the visitors started positively and fashioned the first opening when Adam Clayton volleyed just over.
However, their bright start did not last long as the Clarets took the lead in just the ninth minute.
Kieran Trippier was the orchestrator, sending in a teasing cross which Rodriguez nodded past a helpless Alex McCarthy.
The home side pushed for a second and almost got it moments later when Keith Treacy cleverly worked an opening before seeing McCarthy keep out his toe-poke.
But they suffered a blow in the 29th minute when Charlie Austin was forced off through a shoulder injury, handing a debut to Sam Vokes, who joined on loan from Wolves on Friday.
Ross McCormack twice tested Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant with long-range free-kicks later in the half, but that was all Leeds could muster.
Indeed, the Clarets should have gone into the break two up, but Rodriguez shot straight at McCarthy after getting in behind the backline.
The breathless finish to the half continued as Treacy's sensational 25-yard low strike was kept out by the increasingly busy McCarthy.
Treacy was on hand to test McCarthy once more just after the interval, but the goalkeeper was equal to his 20-yard free-kick.
Treacy must have been starting to wonder what he had to do to score midway through the half, this time being thwarted by the crossbar after producing another thunderous effort.
The home side were left rueing their inability to grab a second in the 75th minute as Lloyd Sam's cross picked out Snodgrass, who slid home at the back post.
Burnley continued to dominate thereafter, with Rodriguez firing just over late on.
And that was to prove costly as, with two minutes remaining, the ball broke to Snodgrass to chest it down at the back post and finish coolly.
