Healy No Super-Sub

Healy No Super-Sub

David Healy is pushing for a start for today's match against QPR at Elland Road. The Leeds striker came off the bench to score the equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Ipswich on Tuesday, and Kevin Blackwell has hinted he could be in the starting line-up.

Shaun Derry should be included despite suffering from flu in the week, but Frazer Richardson (hamstring) and long-term victims Matt Kilgallon (knee) and Steve Stone (Achilles) are still out.

Good news for the Whites ... QPR have a goalkeeping crisis on their hands. First-choice Simon Royce is extremely doubtful after sustaining an abdominal injury in training on Thursday, while reserve keeper Jake Cole is at least two weeks away from full fitness with an ankle ligament problem.

And if that was not enough for Rangers boss Ian Holloway, key defender Matthew Rose is struggling to be fit after aggravating a back injury in the 3-2 home defeat by Leicester on Tuesday.

Holloway was furious with his team's display in that match and is likely to hand debuts to defender Keith Lowe and striker Leon Clarke, who are on loan from Wolves, while Ian Evatt could be recalled in place of Georges Santos in central defence.

Marc Bircham (hamstring) and Martin Rowlands (illness) remain sidelined, while fellow midfielder Tommy Doherty is still lacking match fitness after recovering from a fibula injury.

Defender Dominic Shimmin (groin) and striker Kevin Gallen (back) are also out.
