Injury Crisis?

Injury Crisis?



Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell will make enforced changes due to illness and injury.

He could be without as many as six of the side that started in the goalless draw with Plymouth last week.

Blackwell: 'I've got a couple who will not play. I'm not prepared to say who they are, but there will be some enforced changes.'

Skipper Paul Butler, Stephen Crainey, Gary Kelly and on-loan Danny Graham have all been struggling with a virus.

Blackwell also has concerns over defender Sean Gregan, who injured his ribs against Plymouth, Frazer Richardson, who has suffered a recurrence of his knee problem and Shaun Derry (ankle).

Steve Stone (Achilles) edged closer to his first-team debut with a half-hour run-out with the reserves this week and Richard Cresswell (knee) is also making steady progress.
