11th-placed Leeds United host 6th-placed Bristol City on Sunday in what is manager Paul Heckingbottom’s 2nd game in charge of the Whites.
With 8 points currently separating both playoffs hopefuls, a win will go a long way in helping to boost Leeds’ chances of reviving their campaign.
However, the new boss has injuries and suspensions to deal with, just like the visitors too.
The crucial trio of Samuel Saiz, Liam Cooper and Gaetano Berardi serves the final game of their respective suspensions, while January signing Tyler Roberts is unavailable for selection after picking up a shin injury that could see him spend a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
A win in his first ever home game in charge of Leeds will be a good way for Heckingbottom to kickoff his Elland Road career, and Bristol City’s woes might boost that chance.
Defender Nathan Baker, who has played 25 Championship games this term, is set to sit out the last of his 3-game suspension, while striker Matt Taylor will miss out.
In what is a blow to the visitors, the English striker is out for few weeks after recently undergoing a hernia operation.
