Leeds right-back Luke Ayling should be fit to return against Watford at Elland Road this weekend, according to journalist Joe Urquhart.
The Lowdown: Injury woes
Leeds have been down to the bare bones in recent weeks, with Ayling going off against Newcastle earlier this month.
Raphinha has been managing a hip problem in the last two fixtures, but it seems as if the Whites could have Ayling back in contention on Saturday.
Who would you start at right-back this weekend?
The Latest: Back against Watford?
Urquhart shared a story on The Yorkshire Evening Post on Tuesday lunchtime, looking at the club’s injury list in full.
When it came to Ayling, who pundit Kevin Campbell labelled ‘incredible’ earlier this month, Urquhart claimed the right-back should be fit against the Hornets after almost making the defeat to West Ham last time out.
The Verdict: A more experienced backline
Struijk has served a three-game suspension so will also be available for selection, meaning Marcelo Bielsa could field a more experienced backline against the Hornets.
Jamie Shackleton and Charlie Cresswell didn’t look out of place against the Hammers, but Ayling has been a regular and Struijk has impressed, so having the pair back would be a big boost as Leeds search for a first win.
