Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that striker Patrick Bamford could miss their upcoming Championship fixture against Queens Park Rangers (via @Phil_Hay).
The Argentine told reporters at his pre-match press conference that the former Norwich City and Middlesbrough man is struggling with an ankle injury.
Bamford has been a regular for the West Yorkshire outfit this season, starting all 14 of their Championship matches to date (via TransferMarkt).
However, he has been struggling in front of goal recently and hasn’t managed to find the back of the net in any of his last nine appearances (via WhoScored).
Therefore, many fans aren’t too upset that Bamford may miss the QPR game with injury, and are instead excited that Nketiah may finally be given the opportunity to play from the beginning.
Here is what some have been saying on Twitter…
