Changes For Change Of Fortune

Changes For Change Of Fortune

Kevin Blackwell has hinted he could make changes to his starting line-up for the visit of Plymouth.

Leeds must get back to winning ways lift the confidence of the players in time for the play-offs. Automatic promotion has blown up in Blackwell's face, no win in five games tells its own story.

Midfield pair Eirik Bakke and Joel Griffiths both staked their claims as the reserves beat West Brom 3-1 in midweek and Gylfi Einarsson has shaken off illness, but striker Jermaine Beckford is ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Blackwell must decide whether to stick with Sean Gregan alongside skipper Paul Butler at the back or recall Matthew Kilgallon and choose between Rob Hulse, David Healy, Robbie Blake and on-loan Danny Graham for the two places up front.

Steve Stone (Achilles) and Richard Cresswell (knee) remain sidelined, but Blackwell has no new major injury or suspension worries.
