Adam Forshaw also picked up an injury in Leeds United‘s pre-season friendly draw with Crystal Palace, adding to a fitness setback for Luis Sinisterra.
The Lowdown: Sinisterra blow
The Whites drew 1-1 with Palace on Friday afternoon, but the number one thing Jesse Marsch would have wanted is that his squad come through the game unscathed – he was dealt bad news on that front pretty quickly.
That wasn’t the only issue, however, on a frustrating day at the office for Marsch and his side.
The Latest: Forshaw injured
Taking to Twitter, Simon Stone confirmed that Forshaw also had to go off with a problem of his own, adding to Leeds’ woes: “Now Forshaw gone off, also heading straight down the tunnel. Another injury.”
The Verdict: Another cruel blow for midfielder
Forshaw has suffered a horribly injury-plagued career in recent years, missing almost two years of action with a hip issue and also suffering fresh problems last season.
This is, therefore, a cruel setback for a player who needs some good luck for once, not to mention the fact that he remains a key man, once being hailed as ‘excellent’ by Noel Whelan.
To have Forshaw missing for the opening league game of the season at home to Wolves next month would be a big blow, especially with Kalvin Phillips departing for Manchester City, so the hope is that this is nothing too serious.
