Leeds United fans were feeling happy after Marcelo Bielsa confirmed the latest team news for the clash against Reading.
In his pre-match press duties ahead of the game with the Royals, the Argentine confirmed that the squad for tomorrow’s fixture will be the same as the one that took on Bristol City (via LUFC). However, an unchanged squad means that winter signing Ian Poveda is likely to be missing, making it four consecutive Championship games where the attacker has been excluded by the former Marseille coach (via Transfermarkt).
Should Bielsa go for the side starting XI, it would mean Patrick Bamford gets yet another run out despite having not scored in his last four games. Another win would mean the Whites would extend their unbeaten run to three games in the Championship, the outfit’s best form since late December/early January (via WhoScored). Fans were left feeling pleased with the confirmation of the team news from their head coach as they reacted on Twitter. Here are some of the replies to the news:
Bielsa believes in them, that’s enough for me

3 points clear of third with 13 games to go. Bielsa is the man to get this done! Keep the faith!
