After missing out on Leeds United’s most recent run of fixtures, Pablo Hernandez has suffered a fresh injury problem, this time to his hamstring – at least according to The Athletic journalist Phil Hay.
Is Marcelo Bielsa capable of taking Leeds United up?
Bielsa confirms an unchanged line-up for tomorrow’s game. Hernandez unlikely to be available this week. A different injury to his previous one. First was in his calf, this one is in his hamstring. #lufc

Hernandez, who was originally coming back from a calf problem suffered three games before the international break, appeared to be on the mend – getting a run out for the U23s last Friday.
However, due to fresh injury concerns, this time surrounding his hamstring, Hernandez looks set to be out for a little while longer.
The Spaniard has made eight appearances for the Lilywhites so far this campaign, scoring two goals and providing two assists, as per WhoScored.com, putting on some influential performances in Leeds’ bid to gain automatic promotion.
Hernandez joins Liam Cooper, Adam Forshaw and Jamie Shackleton on Marcelo Bielsa’s injury list for the upcoming fixtures – with Leeds fans voicing their concerns.

No playmaker and lack off quality in the team with the likes of Pablo, Forshaw, Shackleton and Cooper missing imo
