Leeds fans on Twitter want to see Huffer and Halme retain their places

Leeds fans on Twitter want to see Huffer and Halme retain their places - Championship

On Saturday, Leeds United disposed of Bristol City at Elland Road even though they were missing their number one goalkeeper and their best defender in Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Pontus Jansson. However, Marcelo Bielsa brought in Will Huffer and Aapo Halme to good effect, with both of the stand-ins playing well as they helped preserve a clean sheet in the Championship.

After the pair’s Saturday performance, it looks like Bielsa could be set to throw them both back in as Reading visit Yorkshire tonight in midweek Championship action. The Yorkshire Evening Post brought this news as Bielsa has claimed he’s unsure whether or not Jansson and BPF will be available, and the fans would rather see their stars get given time to recover and come back fully fit and firing for Sheffield United on Saturday.

Both Huffer and Halme were good enough to step in for the odd game but the fans are still convinced that they won’t be able to fill the role of long-term alternatives just yet. However, it’s still good for Bielsa to know he can rely on some of his fringe men for the odd game here or there considering the current injury situation and the size of the squad at Elland Road, although if either of the fill-ins have a poor game tonight then the mood will quickly change amongst the fans.

The Whites are more than prepared to throw in Huffer and Halme tonight and will just hope that their senior pros can be back for Sheffield on Saturday.
