Who's in, who's out
Kenny Jackett will be without Darius Henderson, Paul Robinson and John Marquis for Sunday’s visit of Leeds United.
Henderson was forced off against Watford 10 days ago with a hamstring injury and though he is making good progress, the game will come too soon for the striker.
Robinson and Marquis are both making steady recoveries from their respective longer-term injuries but it may still be some weeks before we see the return of either.
James Henry, who also suffered a hamstring injury during the 0-0 draw with The Hornets, is rated at 50-50 for the visit of Neil Warnock’s side but Chris Taylor, who suffered a back injury against Derby County, is fully fit.
For the visitors, star striker Ross McCormack could be in line for an earlier than expected return to the squad after picking up a injury in September that was initially thought to keep him out until December.
There is a doubt, however, over the fitness of captain Lee Peltier who picked up a recent knock. The defender will face a late fitness test.
Fans favourite Rodolph Austin is likely to miss several weeks for the Elland Road outfit after cracking an ankle bone in last weekend’s 6-1 defeat to Watford. Neil Warnock’s side will also definitely be without Jason Pearce and Michael Brown, who are both suspended.
