Leeds team news: Four key men ruled out of Millwall clash

Leeds team news: Four key men ruled out of Millwall clash

Leeds United will be looking to continue their great start to the Championship season with a win against Millwall on Saturday.

The Whites travel to The Den looking to rectify their poor record at the stadium, having not won a match in their last four meetings at the ground.

However, things will be even more difficult than before for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as the club’s official website have confirmed a number of key players will be unavailable for the trip to London.

Patrick Bamford has been ruled out with a posterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up against Bristol City Under-23’s and is set to spend around four months on the sidelines.

To make Bielsa’s attacking options even slimmer on Saturday, Kemar Roofe has also been made unavailable with a knock, whilst Pablo Hernandez continues his rehabilitation.

Gaetano Berardi is another key man that has been ruled out through injury, leaving the defensive options threadbare for the game.

Tyler Roberts could be handed a chance to shine in their absence, whilst Adam Forshaw may make a return to action against the Lions after recovering from a foot injury.

The Verdict:

Leeds have not had any success when playing at The Den in recent years and things do not look promising for Bielsa’s side this Saturday.

The Whites have been playing some great football as of late, however, the injuries are starting to pile up on a small squad and could go against them in their clash with the Lions.

The Elland Road outfit’s season came undone last year by Millwall and Bielsa will be hoping they do not come off the rails once again.
