Leeds are boosted by the return of their captain Lucas Radebe. Radebe missed the 1-0 defeat by Leicester two weeks ago because of international duty with South Africa in the African Nations' Cup. But he should replace David Wetherall in the centre of defence and resume his partnership with Robert Molenaar. David Hopkin and Bruno Ribeiro are also included in the squad after recovering from their recent injuries, but Derek Lilley is out with an ankle problem, while Gary Kelly and Alan Maybury both face shin surgery. Meanwhile, the goalkeeper Nigel Martyn makes his 100th appearance for Leeds in league and cup competitions.
