Leeds team news

Junior Firpo suffered an injury to the inside of his knee in midweek that required the left-back to be stretchered off.

Tyler Roberts was forced to limp his way through the final ten minutes of Jesse Marsch's first game at the helm against Leicester City last weekend. The Wales international underwent surgery on the issue but has been ruled out for the next three to four months.

Leo Fuhr Hjelde also went under the knife but Marsch was optimistic that the youngster could make a return in "a matter of weeks rather than months".

Long-term absentee Kalvin Phillips has had his return plotted for the other side of March's international break. Captain Liam Cooper is on a similar recovery trajectory but Patrick Bamford made a cameo appearance off the bench against Villa.

Dean Smith lost Adam Idah to a knee injury that ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign in February. Fellow Republic of Ireland international Andrew Omobamidele remains unavailable after a specialist recommended he wear a corset for a lower back problem.

Loanee Billy Gilmour is expected to make a swift return after sitting out Norwich's Thursday night match against his parent club Chelsea.


Leeds vs Norwich score prediction

Both teams have been insipid at the back, ranking as the only two sides in England's top tier to concede an average of two goals each match.

Leeds have been able to hover narrowly above the dotted line by virtue of a frontline that has spluttered in and out of form but still dwarfs the pitiful return Norwich have scratched together this season.

Yet, in a meeting between two teams that have lost their last six matches both might stop that streak this weekend.

Prediction: Leeds 1-1 Norwich
