Leeds United fans have been reacting to the news that Adam Forshaw is a doubt for their match against West Bromwich Albion, as per BBC Sport’s Adam Pope.
Eddie Nketiah or Patrick Bamford?
It’s probable that Adam Forshaw will be missing too v WBA. He is still not over the problem he had before the international break. #lufc

The Whites host the Baggies at Elland Road on Tuesday night as they look to get their Championship campaign back on track after dropping five points in their last two fixtures.
However, a match against Slaven Bilic’s West Brom side awaits them, which may have only been made further difficult after the latest injury update was released by Marcelo Bielsa.
The Baggies were already in fine form, as they remain the only side not to have been beaten in the Championship and sit top of the table, and Leeds will now need to try and conquer them without Forshaw.
According to Bielsa, the 27-year-old is a doubt for the clash at Elland Road because of a recurrence of the hip injury he had previously, despite having played in the loss against Charlton Athletic at the weekend.
“Probably Pablo and Adam are not going to be in the group,” he told reporters, as relayed by the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“The last match before the international break he (Adam) had a little problem and he cannot solve it.”
Indeed, fans were disappointed to hear the news regarding Forshaw, with many of them taking to Twitter to share their initial reactions to the injury update.
Here are just some of them…
