Yeovil Town v Leeds United - Match statistics and Team News

Matt Smith will return to the squad to face Yeovil following suspension and Noel Hunt is poised for his first appearance since October. Smith has served a three-game ban following his straight red card in last month's 6-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday, while Hunt has been struggling with a torn hamstring that has restricted him to nine appearances since arriving at the club in July. Manager Brian McDermott has no new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make too many changes after last week's 5-1 home win against Huddersfield. Striker Dominic Poleon, plus defenders Lee Peltier and Scott Wootton are among those pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.


• Leeds won the earlier meeting this season 2-0 at Elland Road in November.
• Leeds are unbeaten in all seven meetings between the sides, winning six. The only meeting in which Leeds failed to win was 1-1 at Huish Park in League One in August 2008.
• Leeds have won two of the three meetings at Huish Park, drawing one.
• Yeovil have lost six of their last seven games in the Championship.
