Will Clyne be fine?
Crystal Palace will check on Nathaniel Clyne ahead of the visit of Leeds.
The right-back was ruled out of Tuesday night's Carling Cup semi-final first-leg win over Cardiff with the virus which swept through the club last week.
Skipper Paddy McCarthy and midfielder Mile Jedinak climbed off their sick beds to play and their fitness will also be assessed after boss Dougie Freedman admitted they were "out on their feet" afterwards.
On-loan Doncaster defender Mustapha Dumbuya returns after he was cup-tied while John Egan, David Wright, Owen Garvan and Jermaine Easter will be in contention if Freedman makes changes.
Left-back Dean Moxey is still missing with a knee injury and joins long-termers Jonathan Williams (broken leg), Alex Marrow (ankle) and Lee Hills (knee) on the sidelines.M
Leeds winger Robert Snodgrass could make an unexpected return to action.
The 24-year-old had an appendix operation between Christmas and the new year and has missed the last three games against Barnsley, Burnley and Arsenal.
But Snodgrass returned to full training this week and manager Simon Grayson has not ruled out a surprise return at Selhurst Park for the Scotland international.
Latest signing Robbie Rogers will not be involved as the club are seeking special dispensation for a work permit and skipper Jonny Howson, striker Davide Somma (both knee) and Lee Bromby (calf) remain sidelined.
Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems, but faces several selection dilemmas, with teenage defender Zac Thompson hoping to keep his place after an accomplished display in the FA Cup defeat at Arsenal.
Finland international midfielder Mika Vayrynen is hoping to retain his place, as is striker Ramon Nunez after the pair were both recalled at the Emirates Stadium.
Snodgrass marks comeback with point saver
Robert Snodgrass stepped off the bench to rescue a point for Leeds in a 1-1 draw against 10-man Crystal Palace just over two weeks after undergoing surgery on his appendix.
The Scotland international, a surprise inclusion in the Leeds squad, struck from close range in the 63rd minute to cancel out Chris Martin's early opener for Palace.
The hosts played the second period with 10 men after striker Sean Scannell had been sent off on the stroke of half-time for a second yellow card.
It was the second game running Leeds had come from behind against 10 men after Ross McCormack's stoppage-time winner against Burnley in their last league outing, but today's point did little for either side's npower Championship play-off aspirations.
Palace, with one eye on Wembley in the Carling Cup, have won just three of their last their last eight league games and have dropped to 13th place, while Leeds slipped to 11th, albeit just one point adrift of the top six.
Palace wasted little time in picking up where they left off in their Carling Cup semi-final win over Cardiff on Tuesday night - Anthony Gardner's goal gave them a slender lead to take into the second leg - to take a sixth-minute lead.
Martin cut inside on the left side of the penalty area and arrowed an angled shot into the bottom corner beyond Leeds goalkeeper Andy Lonergan for his second goal of the season.
Leeds spurned their best chance when unmarked midfielder Danny Pugh lashed Adam Clayton's corner over the crossbar from six yards.
Julian Speroni then pulled off two fine saves in quick succession to keep his side ahead.
The Palace keeper smothered Clayton's effort from inside the area and then parried defender Tom Lees' shot in the 36th minute.
Palace were reduced to 10 men on the stroke of half-time. Scannell, already booked for a foul on Andros Townsend, was shown a second yellow card by referee David Coote for his clumsy challenge on Pugh.
Returning Ross McCormack's close-range effort was blocked by Paddy McCarthy and Speroni saved again, from Lees' header, as the visitors looked to make their extra man count after the break.
Leeds manager Simon Grayson sent on Snodgrass for defender Aidy White in the 56th minute and was rewarded seven minutes later.
McCormack slipped the ball to his fellow Scot inside the box and Snodgrass tucked the ball into the bottom corner from six yards.
Republic of Ireland defender Paul McShane, signed on loan from Hull this week, made his Palace debut when replacing Mustapha Dumbuya in the 67th minute.
But Leeds continued to press. Snodgrass, Pugh and Clayton were all off target with long-distance efforts, while Speroni denied Leeds an 86th-minute winner when keeping out substitute Mikael Forssell's close-range shot.
