Gary Kelly is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season with likely replacement Frazer Richardson struggling with a knee injury, while Gylfi Einarsson (shoulder) and Steve Stone (Achilles) remain long-term absentees.

Richard Cresswell could make a surprise return to Leeds’ first-team squad for Saturday’s trip to Wolves.

The striker has not featured since suffering a knee injury in late September but came through 45 minutes of a midweek reserve match unscathed.

Defender Dan Harding may also be fit to travel after a scan revealed he has not broken a bone in his foot.

The England Under-21 international defender limped out of the 1-0 home defeat to Cardiff following a block tackle and initial fears were he had chipped a bone.

He came through training on Thursday although heavy bruising could yet rule him out of the Molineux clash.



Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle has a few defensive problems going into the clash.

Jody Craddock is likely to miss out again after suffering a recurrence of a calf injury.

On-loan defender Gabor Gyepes – who Hoddle is looking to sign on a permanent basis ahead of the clash – needs just one more yellow card to make it five for the season and an automatic one-match ban.

Paul Ince remains sidelined by a thigh injury and Mark Davies will miss out as he continues to recover from a hernia operation.

Colin Cameron could return after recovering from a hamstring problem.
