El Hadji Diouf proved his fitness by playing 90 minutes for Leeds' development squad at Barnsley.

The Senegalese winger has been sidelined by a shin problem and only made his first appearance of the season as a late substitute in the 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

But Diouf got a full match under his belt against the Tykes to put himself firmly in the frame for next weekend's trip to Ipswich.

However, the run-out did not go entirely to plan as Leeds were beaten 3-0 at Oakwell with Jason Scotland scoring twice for the hosts.
