Team News: Leeds United will assess the fitness of striker Souleymane Doukara ahead of the game with Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday night. Doukara suffered an ankle injury in the win over Middlesbrough on Saturday and he was substituted early in the second half. Leeds are still waiting for international clearance for new signing Giuseppe Bellusci. The Italian defender was forced to miss the game at the weekend after the club failed to receive clearance in time due to a Bank Holiday in Italy. Gaetano Berardi will once again be missing as he serves the second game of a three-match suspension for his sending off against Accrington Stanley last week. Steve Morison is still struggling with the calf injury he picked up ahead of the opening game of the season at Millwall and Alex Mowatt is still not ready for a return to first team action.
Brighton could give a debut to new signing Danny Holla. The Dutch midfielder joined the club from Den Haag on Sunday and he will go straight into the squad. The Seagulls could also give a first start to Joao Carlos Texeira. The young midfielder arrived from Liverpool on the eve of the defeat at Birmingham City on Saturday, making his debut as a substitute. Brighton will also hope to welcome back Solly March to the squad after he missed the opening three games of the season with a back injury but Dale Stephens is struggling with an ankle injury. Andrew Crofts will complete his three-match suspension for his sending off against Sheffield Wednesday on the opening day.
