Bolton Wanderers v Huddersfield Town
Team news: Alex Smithies could return after missing last weekend’s draw with Sheffield Wednesday after suffering back spasms. The goalkeeper, who returned to training this week, may have to be content with a place on the bench if Joe Murphy overcomes a couple of clatterings he received from Stevie May.
Leeds United v Derby County
Team news: Marco Silvestri will remain in goal as Neil Redfearn vowed to stick with a goalkeeper who has made a few uncharacteristic mistakes in recent weeks. Otherwise, Leeds have no fresh concerns over injuries with Redfearn expected to name an unchanged line-up from the one beaten at Blackburn Rovers a week ago.
