Football - Duo missing for Whites

Leeds will still be without striker Dexter Blackstock and defender Scott Wootton against Watford.

Blackstock, on loan from Nottingham Forest, has missed the last two games due to a knee injury, while Wootton remains sidelined with the ankle injury he sustained in the recent win at Charlton.

Matt Smith started up front alongside leading goalscorer Ross McCormack, in the midweek win against Wigan, the latter shook off a hip injnury in time, but Luke Varney provides boss Brian McDermott with an alternative option.

Right-back Sam Byram and left-back Stephen Warnock are pushing for recalls as Leeds chase a sixth straight home win
