Leeds team news: Bamford a doubt for Bielsa as they prepare for Blackburn

Leeds team news: Bamford a doubt for Bielsa as they prepare for Blackburn - Championship

Leeds United will welcome Blackburn Rovers to Elland Road for the Boxing Day clash on Wednesday.

The Whites secured an impressive comeback victory against Aston Villa in their game at the weekend taking them to the top of the Championship table.

Marcelo Bielsa will want to see his side perform in a better manner when they host the Lancashire outfit, however, he could be without one of his key men for the encounter.


According to a match preview by Sky Sports, Patrick Bamford could miss the match with the knee injury he has.

The striker, who has already spent a number of months on the sidelines, picked up the problem in training which led him to miss the game against the Villans.

Bielsa is hopeful that his attacker will not miss too much more action, although it is a doubt if he will feature on Wednesday.

The Verdict:

Bamford’s latest injury will have come as a blow to Bielsa and Leeds as he was just starting to get back into the swing of things.

With the extent of his injury not quite known at the moment, it could be a concerning time for the Whites as they prepare for the Blackburn visit.

However, Leeds have had to deal with plenty of injuries this season, with a number of players still on the sidelines, but Bielsa will still feel confident in the players he has to get a positive result and remain at the summit of the Championship table.
