Leeds welcome back Liam Miller and Simon Walton for the clash with Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.

Suspension kept them out of the 3-1 Boxing Day victory over Coventry but they are now available for selection again.

Richard Cresswell will hope to remain in Leeds’ three-pronged attack after the striker scored in the win over the Sky Blues.

He is expected to keep his place alongside Robbie Blake and David Healy with Rob Hulse still carrying a troublesome hip injury.

Steve Stone will be missing, with another operation on his Achilles casting doubt on whether he will ever play again.


Stoke manager Johan Boskamp has no new injury problems to contend with.

The Dutchman brought back John Halls, Marlon Broomes and Sambegou Bangoura after suspension for the 1-0 defeat at Burnley which saw Luke Chadwick, who has been struggling with illness as well as a hernia problem, complete 90 minutes.

Defender Clint Hill (knee) should return to training in January but midfielder John Eustace (knee) remains a long-term absentee.
