Preview: Leeds United

8 March 2013


ABOUT:
Unbeaten in their last four games, Leeds travel to Selhurst with an outside chance of a play-off spot as Neil Warnock's men sit in 10th place, six points away from the top six with 11 games to go.

The Whites have been poor on their travels this season and have notched just three wins on the road this season, coming in August at Peterborough, September at Bristol City and the last coming at Huddersfield on 1st December.

However they were only denied a fourth thanks to an injury time goal for Leicester on Tuesday night at Leeds held the Foxes to a 1-1 draw, but are finding goals hard to come across since top scorer Luciano Becchio joined Norwich City in January.


TEAM NEWS:
Crystal Palace: Jazz Richards is 50/50 to play some part in tomorrow's game having suffered a toe injury against Derby, and Joel Ward and Danny Gabbidon are back in training as they aim to gain match fitness. Paddy McCarthy, Owen Garvan and Alex Nimely are still out.

Leeds United: With an almost fully-fit squad to select from, Warnock could select the same side for the fifth game in a row. Leigh Bromby and Davide Somma are the only players on the sidelines after Adam Drury returned to training this week.
