Steve Morison: Leeds striker has a calf injury

Leeds midfielder Paul Green is hoping injured striker Steve Morison can quickly return to full fitness.

Morison is struggling with a calf injury after being withdrawn at half-time during last week's home draw with Peterborough and missed the derby defeat to Huddersfield on Saturday.

Manager Neil Warnock was without both first-choice forwards against the Terriers - Ross McCormack missed out with a head injury - and was forced to hand a first start to Habib Habibou.

"Steve is out with his calf, but hopefully it's not too serious because obviously Steve is a big threat up there," Green said.

"He causes defenders all sorts of trouble with his size and mobility and he'd just hit a rich vein of form getting the two goals at Palace.

"Hopefully we can get him back and keep him fit."
