Unbeaten Leeds to go unchanged as Monk returns to Elland Road

Leeds are likely to be unchanged for their home game against Birmingham.

Boss Marcelo Bielsa has no new injury concerns following the midweek win against Preston, but all his injured players remain sidelined.

Kemar Roofe (calf) and fellow striker Patrick Bamford (knee), midfielder Pablo Hernandez (hamstring) and defender Gaetano Berardi (knee) will play no part.

Teenage midfielder Jamie Shackleton (ankle) is also still out, while Tyler Roberts will resume in a central striker’s role after his two goals on Tuesday night.

Birmingham’s former Leeds boss Garry Monk is hoping to have both Maikel Kieftenbeld and Craig Gardner back in contention.

Kieftenbeld missed Wednesday night’s goalless draw at Sheffield United, while fellow midfielder Gardner has been sidelined for the last two matches.

Monk must decide whether to retain Charlie Lakin in central midfield – he made his first start for the club in midweek – or recall Kieftenbeld.

Forward Isaac Vassell (hip) and midfielder David Davis (ankle) remain long-term absentees as Blues chase their first league win of the season.
