Pablo Hernandez expected to recover as Leeds host Brentford

Leeds midfielder Pablo Hernandez is expected to recover from a groin strain in time for the home game against Brentford.

Hernandez was forced out of the midweek draw at Derby but hopes to be fit, while Kemar Roofe and Pierre-Michel Lasogga are also likely to shake off knocks.

Samuel Saiz is pushing for a starting place. The Spaniard stepped off the bench on Wednesday night after serving a six-game suspension.

January signing Tyler Roberts’ debut is on hold due to a shin injury, while defenders Luke Ayling and Conor Shaughnessy (both ankle) remain sidelined.

Brentford are expected to be without midfielder Nico Yennaris again, but Lewis Macleod and Sergi Canos are back in contention.

Yennaris missed last week’s win at Sunderland due to personal reasons and played no part in the midweek victory against Birmingham due to illness.

Macleod returned to full training this week following injury and Canos has completed a three-game ban.

Josh McEachran is available after recovering from a blow to the ribs which forced him off against Birmingham, but Rico Henry (knee) is still out.
