Leeds fans on Twitter hit new low upon hearing news of Alioski blow

Leeds fans on Twitter hit new low upon hearing news of Alioski blow

So, as if two defeats in four days to end the Whites’ automatic promotion hopes wasn’t bad enough, they’ve now been hit with the news that Ezgjan Alioski’s season is over. The Macedonian winger-turned-full-back injured his knee against Brentford and has been sent for surgery, ruling him out for between six to eight weeks.

This news, brought to the fans by the ever-reliable Phil Hay, means that the Whites are going to be stuck with either Stuart Dallas or Gaetano Berardi at left-back for the playoffs, and it’s devastating news. This time last month the Whites would have been confident of not even having to worry about finishing outside of the top two, but it has very quickly turned sour after defeats to Wigan Athletic and Brentford.

The Whites are now worried that much like Alioski’s, their season could be over. It looks like Sheffield United will be pipping them to the second automatic promotion spot and returning to the Premier League after a 12-year absence. Leeds, though, have been waiting even longer and it looks like their wait will go on, especially if they can’t kick their injury problems before the playoffs start.

Leeds fans everywhere will be wondering what they’ve done to deserve such awful luck and won’t be holding out too much hope of winning the playoffs if their injury woes persist.
