Patrick Bamford was seemingly absent from Leeds United’s pre-Fulham training session on Thursday, suggesting he could miss out against the Cottagers.
The 27-year-old has been a revelation so far this season, arguably proving to be the Whites’ star man in their first year back in the Premier League.
Bamford has scored 13 goals in 28 league appearances in 2020/21, while five assists are also proof that he is more than just a goalscorer.
Unfortunately, the striker limped out of last weekend’s 0-0 draw at home to Chelsea, immediately throwing his involvement against Fulham on Friday night in doubt.

It is worth stressing that there is no confirmation that the Englishman will miss the Fulham match through injury, but not seeing him alongside his teammates does raise suspicions.
Transfer Tavern take
Bamford has been such an integral player for Leeds this season, so having him unavailable for the trip to Craven Cottage would be a massive blow.
Not only would his potency in front of goal be a big loss, but his link-up play and work ethic, too, bringing the best out of his teammates.
In other news, Leeds have been linked with an exciting move for a French midfielder. Read about who it is here.
