Leeds United manager Brian McDermott has confirmed that left-back Stephen Warnock and defender Marius Zaliukas will be unavailable against Birmingham City.

Warnock picked up an ankle injury which will keep him out from the trip to Birmingham, but McDermott hopes to name Michael Tonge and Luke Murphy in the travelling squad.

“Tonge and Murphy should be okay”, McDermott told the club’s official site. “Warnock and Zaliukas won’t."

The 53-year-old also confirmed that winger Jimmy Kebe will not be available for selection.


“Kebe is still out with a hamstring injury.”

Leeds United are currently 16th in the Championship, the second tier of English football, on 53 points.

The Whites will take on Birmingham City, who are fighting for survival in the Championship, at St. Andrew’s this Saturday.
