Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt is a major doubt for the final game of the season against Derby County on Saturday.

The midfielder was stretchered off with a knee injury in the win at Birmingham City last weekend and boss Brian McDermott says he hasn`t trained this week.

Defender Sam Byram will once again be missing with the hamstring injury that has seen him miss the last five games.

Fellow defenders Stephen Warnock and Marius Zaliukas are also unlikely to feature after recent injuries.

Midfielder Jimmy Kebe has returned to parent club Crystal Palace with the hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined since March and winger Cameron Stewart has returned to Hull City after completing his 93-day loan.

Derby could make changes with their play-off place secured. The rams are guaranteed a third placed finish and manager Steve McLaren could give a few players a rest ahead of the semi-finals next week.

McLaren has no fresh injuries for the game with just James O`Connor, Shaun Barker and Paul Coutts remaining on the sidelines with long-term injuries.
