Leeds United will want to bounce back immediately from their defeat to Norwich City last weekend when they travel to Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side slumped to a 3-1 defeat to The Canaries and dropped to second place in the Championship table.
The Argentine will want to see a reaction from his players when they play in the early kick off this weekend, however, he could be without three of his midfielders for the game at The Riverside Stadium.
According to Phil Hay, Mateusz Klich, Pablo Hernandez and Adam Forshaw are all doubtful.
Doubts over Klich and Forshaw, who have knee injuries. Hernandez also a doubt with a groin problem. So Bielsa's line-up is still to be finally decided. But Kalvin Phillips will start. #lufc

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist revealed on Twitter that Klich and Forshaw were continuing to struggle with knee injuries whilst Hernandez was trying to recover from a groin problem.
Leeds have been no strangers to injury concerns this season, however, this latest potential setback could not have come at a worse time for the Elland Road outfit.
It would be fair to say the game against Middlesbrough could have season-defining implications riding on it and Bielsa would have wanted the trio to have been available for selection.
The three midfielders have played key roles for The Whites over the course of the campaign and have been a large reason as to why Leeds find themselves around the summit of the Championship table.
