CONNOLLY SET FOR RETURN
Leeds defenders Paul Connolly and Darren O'Dea are expected to return to the starting line-up against Derby following suspension.
Right-back Connolly sat out Friday's defeat at Reading following his dismissal against Watford, while centre-back O'Dea has missed the last two games after amassing 10 yellow cards .
But midfielder Adam Clayton serves the second game of his two-match ban after reaching 10 bookings and teenage defender Zac Thompson starts a three-match suspension after his straight red card for his reckless lunge on Reading winger Jobi McAnuff.
Manager Neil Warnock has no new injury problems, but winger Aidy White remains sidelined with an ankle injury that could keep him out for the rest of the season.
Midfielder Danny Webber, winger Robbie Rogers and striker Mikael Forssell all made late substitute appearances at Reading and will be hoping to play bigger roles against the Rams.
Leeds, in 10th place, are six points adrift of the play-off places with five games left to play.
Meanwhile, Steve Davies will probably return to the Derby squad for the clash.
Davies was nursing a bug in the build-up to the home game against Ipswich on Saturday and missed out, but the striker should be back at Elland Road.
Manager Nigel Clough was boosted by the surprise return of Jamie Ward against the Tractor Boys.
The diminutive forward had been out for six weeks with a thigh injury sustained on international duty with Northern Ireland and the Rams had hinted that he might not be risked in the remaining three weeks of the Championship campaign.
But Ward started and lasted 78 minutes, however asking him to play again on Monday may be a stretch too far and a place on the bench is most likely should he be involved.
Nathan Tyson would be favourite to replace Ward in the team.
