Struijk is serving a three-game ban for his straight-red card picked up in the 3-0 loss at home to Liverpool.

Leeds appealed the sending off but the appeal was rejected by the FA and the centre-back starts in today's 2pm kick-off.

Charlie Cresswell captains the side whilst Adam Forshaw is on the bench.
