'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Leeds v Leicester Team News

Teenager Simon Walton will be hoping to make his first appearance of the season for Leeds.

The 18-year-old is expected to be named in boss Kevin Blackwell's depleted squad, together with fellow midfielders Danny Pugh and Frazer Richardson.

Blackwell will be without four midfield players as his side chase a fourth straight win.

Sean Gregan sits out a one-game ban after being booked five times this season, as does on-loan Jonathan Douglas, while Shaun Derry (hamstring) has joined Gylfi Einarsson (shoulder) in the treatment room.

But skipper Paul Butler will return to partner Matthew Kilgallon in the heart of defence after his one-match suspension and strike pair David Healy and Rob Hulse, both nursing long-term ankle injuries, will spearhead Leeds' attack.


Leicester manager Craig Levein could make a number of changes to his side for the game against Leeds.

The Foxes boss made seven changes for the midweek Carling Cup defeat against Bolton and played a 4-5-1 formation but Levein may revert back to a 4-4-2 system for the trip to Elland Road.

Elvis Hammond could return after recovering from an ankle injury while goalkeepers Rab Douglas and Paul Henderson will face late fitness tests before Levein names his squad.
