Leeds United fans will be drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern after another defeat in the Championship to Fulham, although there has been some concerning news coming out of the club following the game.
The Whites were beaten 2-0 by the Craven Cottage outfit, however, the result was just a taste of the damage that was done during the game, as Paul Heckingbottom will need to deal with new injury concerns.
Both Matthew Pennington and Eunan O’Kane were forced to come off in the defeat and Adam Pope, a BBC Radio Leeds journalist, has revealed what the problems were. He states that the defender picked up a problem with his calf, whilst the Republic of Ireland midfielder suffered a groin injury.

There has been no timescale on when they will return as of yet, and with a tough match against Sunderland at the weekend, it is likely Heckingbottom will be without a number of players as his injury list continues to grow.
Leeds fans in the Tavern have been frustrated with their season and the locals will be resigned to the fact that their team will finish in a mid-table position, having started the campaign well. A number of injuries at crucial times have affected their year, but the punters will still be wanting an improved performance on Saturday.
