Leeds United have recalled defender Alex Bruce from Huddersfield Town following a knock to Tom Lees in the 1-0 Boxing Day defeat by Derby County.
Bruce, 27, made three appearances for the Terriers during his loan spell and will be in contention for the New Year fixtures against Barnsley and Burnley.
"We had a 24 hour recall for Alex," Leeds manager Simon Grayson told the club website.
"We want him back here for the weekend. The two games are a quick turnaround."
Grayson added: "By bringing Alex back it strengthens our options."
