Team news:

Andy Robinson is the only doubt after picking up a knock on Saturday against Peterborough; Jermaine Beckford will be pushing hard for a starting place after his two goal comeback as a substitute in the same game.

Alex Revell is out for the rest of the season after breaking his leg last week.
Ex Leeds striker Dougie Freedman missed Saturday`s defeat by Yeovil but will hope to be back in time for this game.


The two clubs have only ever met six times in all competitions and the first of those was only three years ago in the League Cup.
The two clubs have already met this season at Roots Hall when a goal from ex Leeds defender Dan Harding gave the home side a 1-0 victory.
