The 21-year-old centre-half joined Leeds from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee on Tuesday and manager Brian McDermott must decide whether to keep Tom Lees and Jason Pearce in central defence or hand Wootton his debut.
Midfielder Paul Green is expected to recover from a back problem sustained during last week's derby draw with Sheffield Wednesday, while defenders Stephen Warnock, Lee Peltier and Lees are all likely to shake off knocks.
McDermott, who has no other new injury or suspension problems, could be tempted to recall Noel Hunt up front in place of either Luke Varney or Dominic Poleon.
