Leeds entertain Hartlepool United at Elland Road on Saturday hoping to bounce back from last Saturday`s disappointing League defeat.
Leeds won 5-2 at Northampton Town in an FA Cup replay in midweek with Jermaine Beckford scoring a spectacular hat trick.
So far at home this season Leeds have won five, drawn one and lost two.
Last time out Hartlepool beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-1 in a FA Cup replay in midweek.
So far away from home this season Pool have won three and lost five of their games.
Recent form (most recent game first)
Malcolm Christie has been given clearance by the Football League to play for Leeds and may go straight into the squad for Saturday.
Boss Gary McAllister has some very hard decisions to make with a lot of fringe players playing against Northampton and doing very well.
Leeds only doubts are Paul Huntington (groin) and Alan Sheehan (hamstring) although Sheehan has returned to training.
Kevin Kyle returns to the squad after the loan player was unable to play in their midweek cup success.
Sam Collins is also available again after serving his suspension.
The clubs have only ever met five times in their history although one of them was earlier this season in the Carling Cup at Elland Road; Leeds trailed twice but eventually won with a very late winner from Andy Robinson.
All meetings (League unless stated)
1965/66 Leeds United 4-2 Hartlepool United League Cup
1978/79 Hartlepool United 2-6 Leeds United FA Cup
2007/08 Leeds United 2-0 Hartlepool United
2007/08 Hartlepool United 1-1 Leeds United
2008/09 Leeds United 3-2 Hartlepool United League Cup
