Leeds United boss Neil Warnock is sweating on the fitness of Luciano Becchio for the game with Nottingham Forest this weekend.
With fellow striker, Ross McCormack already ruled out for at least two months, Warnock will be desperate for Becchio to have overcome an ankle injury that forced him off in midweek.
Becchio is back in light training and is likely to face a late fitness test.
Adam Drury is another one likely to face a late fitness test. Drury missed the midweek defeat to Hull after picking up a muscle injury at Cardiff City last weekend.
Warnock will once again be without Paul Green, David Norris, Leigh Bromby, Davide Somma and Ramon Nunez through injury.
Forest will be without Adlene Guedioura who serves the first of a three-match suspension for his sending off at Crystal Palace in midweek.
Sam Hutchinson is a doubt after picking up a knee injury at Palace but Forest boss Sean O`Driscoll is hopeful the on loan Chelsea defender will be fit.
Summer signing Henri Lansbury is closing in on a return to action after suffering an ankle injury in pre-season.
