Gaetano Berardi a doubt whilst two edge closer to return

Gaetano Berardi a doubt whilst two edge closer to return

Leeds United will be looking to continue their fine form in the Championship when they return to action against Millwall at the weekend.

However, Phil Hay has revealed on Twitter that the Whites could be without one of Marcelo Bielsa’s main defenders for the trip to the New Den on Saturday.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist has stated that Gaetano Berardi is a doubt for the visit to south London as he appears to be struggling with a knee injury.

The 30-year-old picked up the injury during their match with Middlesbrough just before the international break.

However, in the same tweet, Hay also revealed that the Elland Road outfit had some positive news heading into the game with Millwall.

He stated that Pablo Hernandez has returned to training after missing the last two matches, whilst Adam Forshaw is also in contention to make a return following an injury to his foot in the summer.

The Verdict:

Berardi has been key to Leeds this season so far and Bielsa will be hoping his side can cope without him should he not be able to feature on Saturday.

Pontus Jansson could be the man to fill in for the Argentine, as he will look to partner with Liam Cooper and give them a solid backline once again.

However, the club will be delighted that both Hernandez and Forshaw are edging closer to returns, as the season starts to reach its crucial stages.
