Antonsson made the switch to Elland Road from Swedish outfit Kalmar FF in the summer with much expected of the forward.
The striker has played 19 times for the Yorkshire giants this campaign, but with a poor return of just three goals star forward Chris Wood has locked down the position as the lead man.
He will now be hoping to put in a good display against the League Two side as he aims to help Monk’s side win promotion in the league.
