Leeds: Rodrigo a doubt for Wolves

Leeds: Rodrigo a doubt for Wolves -Leeds United News

Leeds United correspondent Phil Hay has labelled Rodrigo a ‘doubt’ for the trip to Wolves tomorrow evening.

The Lowdown: Impressive Norwich display

The club-record signing was brought off at half-time in the 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa last week but bounced back with an excellent display against Norwich on Sunday.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

No, we are finished!

Unfortunately, Rodrigo, labelled as ‘brilliant’ by Patrick Bamford, had to make way on the hour mark due to a quad problem, and it seems as if that may now rule him out of the trip to Molineux.

The Latest: Hay’s claim

Hay shared a story on The Athletic on Wednesday, looking at Rodrigo’s recent influence both on and off the pitch.

He suggested that the attacker was replaced by Robin Koch due to a tight quad, an issue which has made him a doubt against Wolves, although he hasn’t been ruled out as of yet.

The Verdict: Options

Providing Bamford came through his first start in six months unscathed, Marsch will have a number of options to possibly replace Rodrigo in the starting XI.

Both Jack Harrison and match-winner Joe Gelhardt were named on the bench on Sunday, so they could possibly slot into a 4-2-2-2 system. Should it be Harrison for the Spaniard, then Dan James may partner Bamford up front, however, if Gelhardt is preferred, then it would be a simple swap.

We will learn more at Marsch’s press conference this morning, so fingers crossed it is good news on Rodrigo after his performance on the weekend.
