Nikica Jelavic: Back in the Everton squad following a shin injury

Leeds United will be looking to claim a Premier League scalp when they take on in-form Everton at Elland Road on Tuesday.

Neil Warnock's side geared up for the clash with a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest at the weekend, which kept them in mid-table in the Championship.

Everton swept aside Swansea City 3-0 on Saturday to further boost confidence following a flying start to the season.

Fans are also planning to pay a tribute to the late Wales manager Gary Speed, who spent time with both clubs during his playing career.

Leeds news

Leeds skipper Lee Peltier is a major doubt after being forced out of the weekend win over Nottingham Forest with an ankle injury.

Warnock will also make a late decision on striker Luciano Becchio, who fired his seventh goal in eight appearances this season against Forest despite carrying an ankle injury.

Teenager Dominic Poleon scored on his full debut for the club against Forest and will be hoping to resume his partnership up front with Becchio, although Andy Gray provides Warnock with an alternative option.

Forward Ross McCormack (ankle), plus midfield pair David Norris (thigh) and Paul Green (knee) remain sidelined, but defender Adam Drury returned at the weekend after a muscle strain and is likely to continue at right-back.

Everton news

Everton striker Nikica Jelavic has recovered from a shin injury and returns to the squad.

Defender Tony Hibbert (calf) and Darron Gibson (thigh) are still absent, although the former is expected to have recovered in time for the weekend's visit of Southampton.

Manager David Moyes is expected to make a couple of changes but he plans to put out a strong side and defender Sylvain Distin could return having been rested at the weekend.
