Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has suggested that Liam Cooper could be given a start against Charlton Athletic in the Championship on Tuesday.
Club captain Jason Pearce would have started against the London club at Elland Road, but he is suspended. The 26-year-old defender received his fifth booking of the season against Cardiff City away from home on Saturday.
Pearce will be a huge miss for Leeds against Charlton, but Cooper could prove to be an able replacement.

The 23-year-old Scottish defender joined Leeds from Chesterfield in the summer transfer window and has yet to make a huge impact for the West Yorkshire outfit, but he has potential and quality.
Another summer signing who has yet to make a truly big impact for the Whites this season is Adryan.
The 20-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder was injured for the clash against Cardiff at the Cardiff City Stadium, but Redfearn expects him to return to action against Charlton.
