Football - Blackstock added to Leeds squad

Leeds will add new loan signing Dexter Blackstock to their squad for the West Yorkshire derby clash at Huddersfield.

PA Sport Report

Blackstock joined on an initial month-long loan on Thursday and could feature after being handed the number nine shirt by manager Brian McDermott.

McDermott, who has no new injury or suspension worries, must decide whether to retain Sam Byram and Stephen Warnock as wing-backs either side of three central defenders.

Striker Matt Smith is hoping to keep his place in the starting line-up alongside Ross McCormack after scoring twice in Leeds' 4-0 defeat of Birmingham last Sunday.
