Team News -
Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn will make a late decision on his side for the clash with Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night.
Billy Sharp and Adryan both missed the clash with Cardiff City at the weekend and Redfearn is hoping to welcome them back into the squad.
Rodolph Austin has missed the last two games through injury and Redfearn is not expecting to welcome him back into the squad until after the international break.
Captain Jason Pearce will be missing as he serves a one-match suspension for picking up his fifth yellow card of the season at Cardiff. Liam Cooper is expected to replace Pearce in the starting line-up.
Aidy White and Lewis Walters remain long-term absentees.
Charlton boss Bob Peeters could bring striker Igor Vetokele back into the starting line-up.
The Addicks top scorer this season returned from injury from the substitutes bench against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend and he scored the equaliser to earn them a point.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also pushing for a start after returning from injury at the weekend and playing the second half.
Peeters also has American international defender Oguchi Onyewu waiting to make his debut after he was an unused substitute at the weekend after arriving at the club at the end of last week.
Frederic Bulot and Joe Gomez will once again be missing although Peeters is hoping to have them back after the international break.
Possible Starting XI’s
Leeds: Silvestri; Byram, Bellusci, Pearce, Warnock (c); Bianchi; Cook, Mowatt; Adryan; Antenucci, Doukara.
Charlton: Henderson; Solly, Ben Haim, Bikey, Wiggins; Cousins, Buyens, Jackson, Gudmundsson; Moussa, Vetokele.
