Leeds v Burnley MATCH PREVIEW

Leeds forward Luciano Becchio is still struggling with a hamstring problem and remains a doubt.
Lloyd Sam has a knee complaint and is not expected to be involved.Burnley may not be able to include Dean Marney, despite the midfielder making steady progress in his recovery from a knee injury.There is better news for the Clarets on Martin Paterson, who could be fit enough to take his place on the bench following a thigh problem.Leeds have had a great season but appear to have run out of steam in the closing stages. They recently dropped out of the top six, and will probably need to win this match to have any chance of making the play-offs when they go into their final-day game against leaders QPR.Without a win in five matches - their worst run of the campaign - Simon Grayson's men are down to ninth in the table, which is their lowest position for six months. But they remain strong at home, having lost only one of their last 15 matches at Elland Road.Burnley head there one place and one point better off than Leeds, and have been in decent form while the Yorkshire side have been struggling to stay in the promotion race.

The Clarets, who have come from behind to win on eight occasions in the league this season, had to settle for a point against Portsmouth on Monday but won their three previous matches.
