Gaetano Berardi a major doubt for Millwall trip

Gaetano Berardi a major doubt for Millwall trip

Leeds United will be preparing for their return to Championship action with Millwall on Saturday in a game that they have struggled in the past.

The Whites do not have a great record when it comes to playing against the Lions, however, it will be the first time that Marcelo Bielsa has come up against them and he will be expecting his team to continue to pick up from where they left off prior to the international break.

In fact, Leeds will be looking to end a run of four successive defeats to the south London outfit when they meet on Saturday.

However, according to a report by the Yorkshire Evening Post, he could have a major doubt ahead of the game at The New Den.

Gaetano Berardi has been named as a huge doubt for the trip to the capital this weekend as he continues to struggle with the knee problem he picked up during their goalless draw with Middlesbrough a couple of weeks ago.

The Verdict:

Berardi would be a blow to Leeds if he were to be absent for their game with Millwall.

A match that has also been a heated affair between the two sides, Bielsa will be desperately keen to see the defender be available for the game, especially considering the options he has available.

Many feel that the Whites are currently lacking depth at the back, with the player having to fill in at centre-back, with just Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper their only senior members of the squad.
