Leeds: Phil Hay relays Luke Ayling injury concern

Leeds: Phil Hay relays Luke Ayling injury concern -Leeds United News

Leeds United correspondent Phil Hay has relayed a new injury concern for Jesse Marsch regarding Luke Ayling.

The Lowdown: Late substitution

Ayling, who has been key under Marsch since the American replaced Marcelo Bielsa, was forced off against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

No, we are finished!

The 30-year-old, who Jermaine Jenas labelled as ‘quick’ and ‘agile’, scored the winner against Wolves prior to the international break but missed his first minutes under Marsch. The right-back called for treatment and was taken off for Pascal Struijk late on in a 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

The Latest: Hay’s post

Hay relayed comments from Marsch on Twitter on Saturday evening, with the Leeds boss addressing a mix up on the touchline.

Captain Liam Cooper was supposed to come off for Struijk, however, Ayling was the man to make way due to a ‘little (injury) situation’.

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

The Whites received a major double boost with Cooper and Kalvin Phillips making their first appearances since December, so it would be typical of Leeds’ season if they now have a new injury concern with Ayling.

He has already missed nine games this season with a knee problem, so hopefully, his withdrawal was only as a precaution, as Marsch suspects it will be ‘fine‘.

Ayling’s presence at right-back is needed in a crucial trip to Watford next weekend, especially with Stuart Dallas covering Junior Firpo at left-back.
