Winger Jack Clarke continues his recovery as Sky Bet Championship promotion-chasers Leeds prepare for the visit of Swansea.
The 18-year-old was taken ill during Saturday's match at Middlesbrough, and later discharged back into the care of Leeds' medical staff following hospital checks.

Pablo Hernandez should replace Clarke in the starting XI. Stuart Dallas (ankle) and Gaetano Berardi (hamstring) are set to step up their recovery with a return to action for the Under-23s. Adam Forshaw has been carrying a knee problem, while defender Barry Douglas continues rehabilitation from a muscular problem.
Swansea will check on forward Oliver McBurnie ahead of the trip to Elland Road. The 15-goal Scotland striker has been suffering from illness and came off the bench for the closing stages of Saturday's 1-0 home win over Millwall.
Defender Declan John is rated as only 50/50 because of an ankle injury. Midfielder Leroy Fer continues his recovery from a hamstring problem.
Leeds have won their last nine home matches against Swansea in all competitions, with this their first meeting at Elland Road since September 2010.
Swansea have only won once away from home at Leeds in all competitions (D3 L15), a 2-1 win in September 1949.
Leeds have lost two of their last three league games at Elland Road (W1), one more than in their previous 16 combined (W11 D4 L1).
Swansea have lost nine of their last 10 league matches played on Wednesday, winning the other away at Arsenal in March 2016 under Francesco Guidolin.
Three of Leeds' last five Championship goals have been scored in the 90th minute - as many as their previous 71 goals at Elland Road, stretching back to December 2016.
Swansea have won just two of their last 13 away league visits to Yorkshire (D3 L8), losing their last two against Rotherham and Hull.
Leeds have got to do something to get back to winning ways. The Daniel James transfer saga will provide a nice little narrative to this, but I don't think this will be as straightforward for Leeds as they might think, playing against a Swansea side that has been dismantled over the course of the season, whose aim is to finish safely in mid-table.
Leeds would have sat and watched the East Anglian derby and seen Norwich come away with a 3-0 win over Ipswich that put them back to the top of the table so they'll want to win this, but I'm going for a draw.
David Prutton predicts: 1-1 (13/2 with Sky Bet)
