Leeds: Phil Hay provides triple positive injury update

Leeds: Phil Hay provides triple positive injury update -Leeds United News

Leeds United trio Pascal Struijk, Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford could all return from injury to face West Ham this weekend, journalist Phil Hay has confirmed.

The Lowdown: Leeds suffer injury-hit season

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have experienced a hugely taxing campaign, hovering ominously above the Premier League relegation zone and suffering injuries to key men seemingly every week.

The likes of Kalvin Phillips and Bamford are just two of the important figures who have missed chunks of action and it has played a huge part in the Whites’ struggles.

Leeds visit West Ham in the league on Sunday afternoon and it finally looks as though some positive injury news has emerged.

The Latest: Positive update emerges

Taking to Twitter on Friday, Hay confirmed that Struijk, Rodrigo and Bamford are all in contention to feature at the London Stadium this weekend:

“Bamford, Rodrigo and Struijk could all be involved, which is clearly a big and overdue boost.”

The Verdict: Massive news

This is a much-needed positive for Leeds, with Bamford’s return clearly the biggest boost, considering his importance to this side in recent years.

The 28-year-old is still the Whites’ joint-second-top scorer in the league this season with two goals in 2021/22, despite only starting five matches in the competition.

The lack of goals from other sources has had a devastating effect on a side who scored three or more goals on ten separate occasions in the league last season – they’ve only managed that once this term.

Rodrigo’s return will also add required firepower to the squad, while Struijk’s ability to play at centre-back and in midfield means his comeback will also be welcome, giving Bielsa more choices and an ability to rotate.

In other news, Victor Orta is reportedly still working on signing one type of player. Read more here.
