Team news

Leeds
The Whites are still without the injured Jermaine Beckford and Andy Robinson. Fabian Delph returns after suspension whilst Malcolm Christie will be pushing for a place after returning from injury.

Colchester
Steve Gillespie has returned to training for the U`s but it`s probably too soon for him to return on Saturday.
On loan striker Jermaine Easter has scored two goals in four appearances and looks likely to lead the attack for the visitors

There have been two clashes at Elland Road with Leeds winning both scoring seven goals and yet to concede.
