LEEDS United could be without as many as eight players as they attempt to get their season moving against Bolton Wanderers.

Gaetano Berardi and Rodolph Austin are the last additions to an injury list which will deprive David Hockaday of numerous squad members tomorrow.

Right-back Berardi was due to return from suspension during Wednesday’s League Cup tie at Bradford City but suffered concussion in training ahead of the game and will not be included against Bolton.

Austin is also a major doubt after a hamstring problem forced him to sit out of the visit to Valley Parade.

Luke Murphy and Sam Byram are both banned following their recent red cards and Aidan White, Souleymane Doukara, Steve Morison and Lewis Walters are all on the sidelines.

New signing Casper Sloth is looking to make his debut.
