Leeds United vs Wigan Athletic - Leeds set to be unchanged against Wigan

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa expects to name an unchanged side for the clash with Wigan at Elland Road.

Centre-back Liam Cooper is still struggling to recover from the muscle strain he sustained in the build-up to Saturday’s win over Sheffield Wednesday.

But Bielsa reported no new injury problems for the game and will look to keep changes to a minimum as Leeds look to cement their position in the Championship automatic-promotion places.

Bielsa is already without left-back Barry Douglas, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Wigan boss Paul Cook could be without defender Danny Fox as his side look to boost their survival hopes.

Fox limped off midway through his side’s battling 1-1 draw with leaders Norwich on Sunday and will face a late test.

Midfielder Nick Powell could return to the Latics’ starting line-up after being reintroduced from the bench against the Canaries following a recent injury scare.

Anthony Pilkington remains a doubt while Gary Roberts (calf), Callum McManaman (hernia) and Michael Jacobs (hamstring) are all still ruled out.
