A recent wobble has seen Leeds’ play-off push stutter a little of late, but Garry Monk’s Whites remain one of the teams in the box seat for a shot at promotion and face one of the biggest games of the season this weekend as they take on Newcastle.
With this such a massive clash, any news coming out of the Elland Road camp is big and the Yorkshire side’s manager confirmed today that back-up goalkeeper Marco Silvestri will likely miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to fix a knee problem he has been suffering with…
@GarryMonk “Marco Silvestri has had an operation on his knee, at this stage we are unsure if he will be back before the end of the season”

The 26-year-old was never in line to face Newcastle this weekend with his only game time this term having come in the EFL Cup and FA Cup runs, but losing the back-up man is still a blow that could come back to haunt the club if Rob Green is ruled out for any period of time.
Naturally, there has been some reaction from Leeds fans on Twitter and here are some of the best responses to the above tweet…
