LUFC Bristol City v Leeds United Team News
Leeds United play their first game under caretaker boss Neil Redfearn on Saturday and he may make changes after the disappointing 4-1 defeat to Birmingham City in midweek, which proved to be Simon Grayson`s last game in charge.
The defence came in for particular criticism on Tuesday and with Leigh Bromby and Andy O`Brien back in training, there could be changes in the centre of defence.
Young Tottenham Hotspur right back Adam Smith signed on transfer deadline day and he could come into the side at the expense of Zac Thompson.
Winger Robbie Rogers will also be pushing for a place in the squad after training this week following the completion of his deal from MLS side Columbus Crew.
Leeds have just Davide Somma and Patrick Kisnorbo currently on the sidelines.
Somma is yet to feature this season following a cruciate knee ligament injury in pre-season. The South African international is back in training and hoping to be in contention in the next 6-8 weeks.
Kisnorbo is out for the season after suffering a knee injury in the game with Burnley on January 2nd.
Bristol City will definitely be without defender Brian Carey who will serve a one-match ban for his sending off at Reading last weekend.
Marvin Elliott and Liam Fontaine missed the game at Reading last week and are once again doubts for this game.
Ryan Taylor is continuing his return to fitness after suffering a metatarsal injury.
David Clarkson is out for the season after suffering an ankle injury in training last week.
