Jordan Rhodes could make his Blackburn Rovers debut when they travel to Leeds United in the Championship.

Leeds United play host to Blackburn Rovers in a match between two of the league's early performers. Leeds have two wins from three, while Blackburn are unbeaten with seven points from nine.

Leeds boss Neil Warnock should reinstate several players rested from the midweek League Cup tie, with no new injury concerns for the hosts. Luciano Becchio, who scored twice against Peterborough, is certain to start up front.

Steve Kean could be tempted to throw new signing Jordan into the mix, although he is more likely to start from the bench.

Kean has a near full-strength squad to choose from, with Nuno Gomes likely to continue up top after his goal last time out against Leicester City.

Current form:
Leeds:
WLW
Blackburn: DWW

Possible lineups:

Leeds: Kenny; Peltier, Drury, Lees, Pearce; Austin, Varney, Norris; Becchio, Diouf, McCormack

Blackburn: Robinson; Givet, Dann, Ribeiro, Lowe; Pedersen, Murphy, Olsson, Etuhu; Rhodes, Gomes

Sports Mole says: 1-1
