Rio Ferdinand misses out for West Ham after picking up an ankle injury in training. Chilean defender Javier Margas replaces the England defender while Ian Wright, who served a one-match ban last Saturday, replaces Paul Kitson who has a broken toe. Fit-again Marc Keller should replace Eyal Berkovic, who is ruled out with a calf injury. The only good news for Hammers manager Harry Redknapp is that Craig Forrest is fit again and will replace Les Sealey on the bench.
LEEDS UNITED (from): Martyn, Haaland, Radebe, Wetherall, Wijnhard, Hasselbaink, Ribeiro, Bowyer, Hopkin, Granville, Halle, Kewell, Harte, Woodgate, Molenaar, McPhail, Smith, Robinson.
WEST HAM UNITED (from): Hislop, Ruddock, Margas, Pearce, Lomas, Berkovic, Lampard, Sinclair, Lazaridis, Hartson, Wright, Forrest, Keller, Breacker, Potts, Coyne, Boylan, Omoyimni.
