Leeds United are back in action this weekend as we start the run-in in the Sky Bet Championship towards the Christmas period.
The Whites have been in some very good form so far this year and with a third of the campaign down, they have once again established themselves as one of the sides capable of getting into the Premier League.
There are some good sides around them, of course, but they will feel as though they can beat anyone in the league with the players that they have in their squad.
Keeping them fit is going to be the real test this year, as they suffered with injuries last season, and a number of players have had niggles in recent weeks.
It seems as though a couple of key men are in contention for the weekend, though, with Phil Hay revealing this news from Marcelo Bielsa’s latest press conference:
Injury latest ahead of Luton away – Cooper has a chance of being available. Dallas is fine after international duty. No Nketiah but he should be back in full training next week. #lufc

leave cooper out imo don't want him getting the same injury again but worse by being out longer especially with the amount of games coming up

Leave Cooper on bench – at best. Last thing we need is him aggravating it yet again.

Could be worse with our luck haha.
Hopefully Cooper pulls through and Dallas turning out fine is great news. Hope Forshaw isn't too long now as we defo have missed him.
