Leeds are winless in seven matches but of far greater concern to Kevin Blackwell is a virus which is believed to be emanating from the club's Thorp Arch training ground.
It has so far affected skipper Paul Butler, Gary Kelly, Danny Graham, Gylfi Einarsson and Robbie Blake.
Blackwell: 'We've got a virus in the camp which has swept through it and we lost Robbie Blake at 11 o'clock on Saturday morning.
'I'm losing players just prior to games and we've got to somehow assess where the virus is coming from.
'It's lasting for a week and a half so we've got a problem here and we don't need that at this point in the season.'
Striker Blake was the last player to leave Thorp Arch on Friday after training and Blackwell added: 'We've got to try and work out the last connection Robbie Blake had and trace it back to that.
'It's flu-like symptoms for two or three days and then it turns into a virus.
'I'm waiting every morning to see who is going to ring in next to say they're not going to be fit.
'It could be contagious just by mixing together. It could be lingering around the training ground area because it's a hot, humid place.'
