Leeds United fans were over the moon after Marcelo Bielsa revealed some good news regarding Tyler Roberts.
The Argentine revealed that the 20-year-old is fit and available for the club’s clash against promotion rivals Preston North End.
He claimed that Roberts was ‘healthy’ in his pre-match press conference for the game against their northern rivals (via Yorkshire Evening Post).
Roberts has been out for just under a month after he was forced off with a hamstring injury in the first half of the 1-0 win over Reading in November (via Leeds Live).
The young forward has made just four starts for the Whites this season, however, did score the opening goal in the side’s 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers earlier this campaign.
He returns alongside Jamie Shackleton, who had been out since the side’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion earlier this year.
Fans were elated after the youngster was revealed to be returning for the clash against Preston as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
