LEEDS UNITED captain Liam Cooper is back available for selection for Saturday's Championship clash at Fulham.

The Whites skipper has missed United's last three games with a calf strain but the centre-back has been training for the past two days and is in contention to feature at Craven Cottage.

Leeds approach the contest sat second and with a ten-point buffer in the Championship's automatic promotion places, 12 points clear of sixth-placed Fulham who have lost their last three.

Cooper missed both the 2-0 win at Huddersfield Town as well as the 2-0 success at home to Hull City with Gaetano Berardi playing at centre-back alongside Ben White.

With Cooper still missing, Leeds then looked destined to make it seven wins in a row when leading 3-0 in Saturday's clash at home to Cardiff City but the Whites shipped in three goals in the final half hour in a 3-3 draw.
