Sky Bet Championship: Leeds v Watford team news

Leeds pair Sam Byram and Steve Morison are both hoping to be in contention for the home game against Watford.

Byram, playing on the right side of midfield in recent weeks, missed the midweek defeat at Brighton as a precaution due to a slight knee injury, while striker Morison was forced out of the action with a groin problem.

Casper Sloth made a rare start in midfield in Byram's absence on Tuesday night and will be hoping to continue, but Redfearn has hinted at the possibility of rotating his squad.

Giuseppe Bellusci sits out the second game of his two-match ban, so skipper Liam Cooper is expected to resume alongside Sol Bamba in central defence.

Sean Murray remains Watford's only definite injury absentee as he continues his recovery from a knee operation.

Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic will assess a number of unnamed players who have slight knocks ahead of the trip north.

If there are no further casualties, Jokanovic will likely name the same side that beat Rotherham 3-0 in midweek, with Daniel Tozser and Tommie Hoban keeping their places after being recalled to the starting XI, while striker Odion Ighalo will look to add to his 14 goals in his last 10 league appearances.

The Hornets, who have won six of their last eight outings and are unbeaten in four trips to Elland Road, are waiting on international clearance for new signing Marco Motta.
