Striker Pierre Michel-Lasogga is in the squad but may not feature as his girlfriend is due to give birth.
Birmingham City have no new injury or suspension concerns after Saturday's defeat at Norwich.
Blues boss Harry Redknapp gave debuts to six players in that game and could name the same team.
Home win 59%
Away win 17%

Leeds have kept one clean sheet in their last 19 matches against Birmingham in all competitions, with Paddy Kenny the goalkeeper to do so in a 4-0 win in October 2013.
That 4-0 defeat in 2013 is the Blues' only defeat in their last seven trips to Elland Road in all competitions (W4 D2).
Thomas Christiansen is the 12th manager in as many matches to be in charge of Leeds at home to Birmingham in a league match, a run that stretches back to December 1987 when Leeds were managed by Billy Bremner.
Birmingham City have lost their last three league games - they haven't lost four in a row since April 2014 (a run of five). On that occasion, the fourth defeat in that run was against Leeds.
Leeds haven't lost a home match on a Tuesday in any competition since September 2015, winning seven and drawing seven since a 1-0 defeat to Ipswich under Uwe Rosler

The 19-year-old arrived at Elland Road from Nijmegen earlier this week in the wake of Chris Wood's club record £15m move to Premier League.
Chris Wood has departed for Burnley but Samuel Saiz and Kemar Roofe have caught the eye
Head coach Thomas Christiansen made nine changes for the midweek Carabao Cup demolition of League Two Newport, handing full debuts to Eoghan Stokes and Madger Gomes.
However, it was Kemar Roofe who caught the eye with a hat-trick in a 5-1 win and he will hope for another chance to impress in the Sky Bet Championship.
Highlights of the Carabao Cup game between Leeds and Newport
Nottingham Forest boss Mark Warburton will make a handful of changes against Leeds.
Warburton swapped six players for the League Cup win at Newcastle and he will revert back to something like the team that started last weekend's Championship victory over Middlesbrough.
Daryl Murphy struck against Boro in the league last time out
After 120 minutes of football at St James' Park, some players are feeling the effects and Andreas Bouchalakis had to come off at half-time during the second-round tie due to stiffness.
Tendayi Darikwa, Matt Mills, Daryl Murphy and Barrie McKay are among those players expected to be restored to the Reds' starting line-up, while new signing Liam Bridcutt will also be available. Midfielder David Vaughan is injured and will be assessed.

That's the thing, we was. The cunt had it all and in spades. He was pretty quick, could go past players like they weren't there, good in the air, could pick a pass and had a great shot. Plus he was left sided which made him even more valuable because most players are right footed. But he fucked it all up. He became a self-centred, self obsessed, look at me cunt, who didn't think for one second about anything other than himself. He was the complete self before side disciple, even before it was totally fashionable for players to be so self absorbed their personal care routine was more important than how they played.
He fucked Leeds over at a time we were completely broke. He fucked Liverpool over with a series of 'injuries' which, if he'd been an animal would have resulted in a bullet to the head. In fact the only problem with the aussie cunt was that if he'd been shot in the head there was so little going on up there he'd have been able to carry on as normal. Then the cunt went to turkey and re-wrote history to such an extent that he should have been banned from English football for life. And now he's passing on his life skills to young footballers? It's like inviting a pedophile to a children's party and leaving him in charge for a year or 2. He's a vile excuse of a human being and he can fuck right off. The cunt.

Away Fan Watch is back after a call from Big Radz who says the lads were crying out for it - louder than West Stand fans who are still queuing 24 hours later for a pie and a pint.
This season there are more ways for our favourite away fans to top the table of tripe to become our favourite fans of the season - this year we'll be awarding points out of 20 as follows;
Animosity - How much did they hate us on the day?
Repertoire - Their range of songs
'Banter' - One for the Lad Squad - mainly based on their reaction to news of Jimmy Savile fingering their moms
There'll be bonus points available - up to 10 - for any notable individuals who serve their cause well
and finally, the longer they hold back on the "We All Hate Leeds Scum" chants and "Jimmy Savile" chants, the more points can be gained!
Every week, we'll add the latest post to this post below the league table so you don't have to scroll through - we'll also add to the end of the thread for completeness and comments.

Ten years ago today, Tresor Kandol scored a fucking great goal to kick start the -15 points season. How time flies! What a great day, and what a great season. Anybody have any memories from the day?

Would love to see Saiz tonight and a few others with our new found midfield depth.
My prediction would be 3-1.
Dallas, Cooper and Ekuban.

Seriously though will that strip be a disadvantage for away evening games under floodlights as I heard a story that the Don changed our strip to all white not to copy/emulate Real Madrid but in order for our players to pick out team mates under floodlights which sounds quite scientifically astute and typically ahead of the game .

But here I am 70 years later and still standing. I saw them all and loved them all.
I've seen so much and so many. 'We've had our ups and downs.' Well on my watch we certainly have.
I told my son the main reason I love him was because he reminded me of Allan Smith. My grandkids all saw the first light of day wearing the kit. I even had a stand up artist starting her patter: ' my shrink is an avid Leeds United supporter. I always look out for the results. The year they got relegated I was hospitalized.'
But it's always been with humour and pride. So many great memories. The jokes on the terraces, the feeling that there I wasn't a yid who had to be careful. We were all one and together. 'Who are we?' has one simple answer,' we are Leeds.' And that is who we are. When I was at Millwall we were segregated and marched through the tube station. One copper told me, 'you don't go there. sir. They're Leeds United Supporters.' I cannot explain the pride I had with my reply ,' so am I.'
It's an honor to play for Leeds United but it's a privilege to support them.
Every game has the same excitement at kick off. Every season has the same buzz and hope as the opening day arrives.
This year is different. We have been pilloried, ransacked and abused. We lived through it. This year is the beginning of something else. And we are all in it for the better times which are surely ahead. And they are.
A great season to us all.
