Team News
Leeds
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.

Hartlepool
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.


History
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.
