Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford is expected to be fit for the final two Premier League fixtures, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.
The Lowdown: Injury woes
Bamford has missed large parts of the 2021/22 season with a number of different injuries.
The latest issue came against Wolves last month in what was his second start following a three-month layoff. Bamford ruptured his plantar fascia after stretching for a through ball at Molineux and has been ruled out for six weeks.
Luckily, the 28-year-old didn’t need surgery on the problem, and it looks as if he will be available next month.
The Latest: May 15 return
The Yorkshire Evening Post shared a story on Monday afternoon, looking at the Whites’ injury list in full.
When it came to Bamford, they claimed he is expected to be back in time for the final home game of the season against Brighton on May 15 and the trip to Brentford a week later.
Would you play Bamford again this season?
Yes, if he's fit!
No, season over!
The Verdict: Boost
Jesse Marsch will be hoping that Leeds are safe by the time they take on Brighton and Brentford, however, knowing that he’ll be able to call upon Bamford is a huge boost.
Leeds have had a 16-day mini-break between the win over Watford and trip to Crystal Palace, time which will hopefully prove handy as they look to pull clear of the bottom three.
Relegation rivals Everton and Burnley both play twice before Leeds travel to Selhurst Park, so they’ll have a better understanding of if Bamford may be needed later in the season over the next six days.
