Leeds United travel to Reading on Tuesday evening hoping to build on Saturday’s 1-0 Championship win over Bristol City with no new injury worries.

Their narrow victory at Ashton Gate was their third straight success in the league but the Whites still find themselves two points behind leaders Norwich City.

However, with a two-point gap over third-placed Sheffield United, Leeds are still on course to achieve automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Although Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa has had to deal with several injuries throughout the course of the season, he has almost a clean bill of health ahead of the Reading game.

Eunan O’Kane remains a long-term absentee with a broken leg and Kemar Roofe is sidelined with a knee problem, but otherwise the rest of the Leeds players are fully fit, despite Patrick Bamford and Kalvin Phillips picking up knocks at the weekend.

The Yorkshire Evening Post confirmed that both will travel to the Madejski Stadium and in his Monday press conference, Bielsa told the assembled media that he is not expecting to make any changes.

“Yes, it is the same group and the same starting XI,” he said, as quoted by Leeds Live.

It means that Bielsa should name the same line-up for the fifth match in a row after watching a settled side grind out the win at Bristol City after Bamford’s ninth-minute goal put them ahead.

Leeds United probable line-up: Kiko Casilla; Luke Ayling, Pontus Jansson, Liam Cooper, Ezgjan Alioski; Kalvin Phillips, Pablo Hernandez, Mateusz Klich, Tyler Roberts, Jack Harrison; Patrick Bamford
