Defender Giuseppe Bellesci will feature for Leeds United against Wolverhampton Wanderers this afternoon despite facing racism allegations earlier this week.

Leeds United boss Darko Milanic has included defender Giuseppe Bellusci in his starting lineup for the match with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road.

The Italian has been accused of racially abusing Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome during their Championship fixture at Carrow Road on Tuesday, but the former Catania man has been retained in the Whites XI.

Milanic has given Steve Morison his first start in 18 months in attack, while Stephen Warnock and Lewis Cook are also involved.

Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett has been dealt a blow with the news that winger Bakary Sako has not recovered from a knock in time for the game in Yorkshire.

Sako, who has scored in Wolves' last four fixtures, has been replaced by Michael Jacobs, who has remained on the fringes of the squad for the opening months of the campaign.

Leeds United: Silvestri; Berardi, Bellusci, Pearce, Warnock; Bianchi, Cook, Mowatt, Adryan; Antenucci, Morison
Subs: S.Taylor, Byram, Cooper, Murphy, Tonge, Sloth, Montenegro

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Ikeme; Doherty, Batth, Ebanks-Landell, Rowe; McDonald, Evans, Henry, Edwards; Jacobs, Dicko
Subs: Flatt, Golbourne, Stearman, Saville, Clarke, Sagbo, van La Parra
