Leeds United look set to be boosted by the return of Crysencio Summerville for next weekend's trip to Nottingham Forest.
Whites boss Jesse Marsch confirmed in his pre-Accrington Stanley press conference that he expects the young Dutchman to be in contention at the City Ground. Summerville has been out of action for each of Leeds' last three games in all competitions after picking up an ankle injury in the 2-2 draw at Cardiff City in the third round of the FA Cup at the start of the month.
The 21-year-old was in superb form for Leeds prior to the World Cup break, netting in four consecutive matches, including late winners against both Liverpool and Bournemouth. It has been more stop-start for him since the resumption of the season, though he did register a tidy assist in the 2-2 draw with West Ham United.

Marsch provided an update on his condition, as well as both Adam Forshaw and Archie Gray, who are set to be absent against Accrington and so face a race against time to be fit against Forest.
He said: "Adam [Forshaw], Archie [Gray] are still out but Archie is active and Adam is feeling better. Cree [Summerville] should be available for next week."
Marsch also faces fitness doubts over key duo Liam Cooper and Tyler Adams ahead of the weekend. He revealed their availability at Accrington is 'questionable', and whether they feature or not could be a good indicator as to whether they are in contention at the City Ground.
He said: "Coops [Liam Cooper] and [Tyler] Adams are questionable. I want to see where they're at. We want to go for the victory. We have the chance to push and we want to take it seriously and put our best foot forward."
