Norwich City v Leeds United: Latest team news

Leeds United manager Simon Grayson will take a near full-strength squad to Carrow Road today after a flood of comebacks in midweek.
United fielded a strong line-up in Tuesday night's reserve game against Hull City, and the fixture has given Grayson a wide complement of players to choose from against Norwich City.Midfielder Amdy Faye is a doubt after missing United's last two fixtures with a hamstring strain.

Club captain Richard Naylor and goalkeeper Shane Higgs completed 90 minutes against Hull, improving their fitness after knee and hamstring injuries respectively, and Sanchez Watt played all bar the final five minutes of a 6-3 victory.

The on-loan Arsenal winger has not appeared in United's first team since their 2-1 defeat to Leicester City at Elland Road on October 19 but appears to have overcome an ankle injury.

Ben Parker, Ross McCormack, Billy Paynter and Lloyd Sam also came through the match without any reaction but the additional options given to Grayson are unlikely to prompt major changes after a four-game unbeaten run.

Grayson is expected to recall Luciano Becchio  on the strength of the striker's match-winning performance from the bench against Bristol City last weekend.

Higgs will take a place among United's substitutes following the return to Blackburn Rovers of on-loan keeper Jason Brown.
