Leeds fans will be desperate for their side to continue the way they’ve been playing of late when they travel to the Madejski Stadium tonight to face Reading. The Whites will be in for a tough game as ever in the Championship, yet the boost of having Patrick Bamford fit is a huge one as the striker will want to add to his goal from Saturday later today.
News from Bielsa's press conference – Bamford is fit to play. #lufc

Loads of Leeds fans went into a meltdown when they saw that Bamford was subbed early into the first half against Bristol City on Saturday, and when you take a quick look at the striker’s injury history it’s not hard to see why there was panic. Usually, it wouldn’t be too much of an issue, but with Kemar Roofe also out injured, Leeds’ options were starting to look thin.
The Whites would all have been putting tweet notifications on for Phil Hay and rushing to see everything the ever-reliable Yorkshire Evening Post journalist put out. Finally, though, their update came and the news is brilliant. Bamford has passed his fitness test and Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that the Whites will be going into their clash with Reading completely unchanged, and the fans are confident of getting another three points.

The Whites couldn’t be happier to hear of Bamford’s fitness and will hope the English frontman can bag another winner tonight as he did against Bristol City on Saturday.
