With Alan Smith, who has been playing in midfield recently, completing a two-match ban, it leaves Leeds light in the middle of the park ahead of the relegation tussle.
Eirik Bakke should return after being rested for the 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on Wednesday, while striker Michael Bridges could start if Gray opts for a 4-4-2 line-up.
The defeat to The Magpies was The Whites' 11th defeat of the season and leaves them in the bottom two, two points away from safety.
Spurs go into the clash buoyed by their 4-1 hammering of Birmingham on Wednesday night, a win that ended their brief stay in the relegation places.
Acting manager David Pleat knows there is still plenty of work to be done, and hopes Frederic Kanoute can sign off in style before heading of to Tunisia to compete in the African Cup of Nations with Mali after receiving international clearance from Fifa.
Anthony Gardner could be recalled after missing the Blues game with a thigh problem, while Dean Richards is struggling with a calf injury.
The win over Blues ended a disastrous run of four consecutive defeats in the league for the North London outfit, but with seven goals in their last two games they will go to West Yorkshire seeking their second away win of the season in confident mood.
