Neil Adams will take an injury roll call before deciding to shake things up for Leeds' Tuesday night visit.

Wes Hoolahan faces a potential spell on the sidelines with City's medical staff now awaiting the results of scans to assess the extent of the ankle damage suffered in the second half of the 1-0 defeat at Fulham.

Jos Hooiveld and Kyle Lafferty both missed out on another miserable trip to Craven Cottage, but Adams will give the duo every chance to prove their fitness ahead of Leeds' league trip to Carrow Road.

'Laffs didn't train Thursday or Friday with the knee injury he got in the second international game (for Northern Ireland) and we left it as late as we could,' said Adams, who put his squad through their paces at Colney on Sunday. 'The physio had a look at him on Saturday morning and he wasn't ready. Jos was something similar, it was just an innocuous blow on his knee at training on Friday.

'Will we make changes? Yeah, possibly we will have to look at shaking things up. We have players there who deserve an opportunity, who have played well and done nothing wrong, but when you go three games without a win it is something you have to look at. We mixed it up at Fulham with the system we played, after two without a win, and looking at it the system was fine; we enjoyed dominance in the game but it was another case of not getting the first goal or keeping a clean sheet.'
