Leeds team news: Trio facing late fitness tests ahead of Middlesbrough trip

Leeds United will look to return to winning ways on Saturday when they travel to The Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough.

The Whites will meet Boro in the day’s early kickoff and Marcelo Bielsa will want to see a reaction from his side following last weekend’s defeat to Norwich City.

The Argentine will know a win for his side will lift them back to the top of the Championship, although he has some potentially concerning news ahead of the encounter.


According to the club’s official website, Bielsa could be without Mateusz Klich, Pablo Hernandez and Adam Forshaw for the trip.

The midfield trio are all doubtful for the game and will be required to undergo late fitness tests to see if they will be able to play a role.

Gaetano Berardi and Stuart Dallas remain on the sidelines and have been definitely ruled out for the crucial encounter.

The Verdict:

Hernandez, Klich and Forshaw have been incredibly valuable to Leeds this season as injuries continue to disrupt the squad.

The trio have played key roles for The Whites and have been a large reason as to why the club currently find themselves in the hunt for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

As mentioned, Bielsa will want to see a reaction from his side following last weekend’s defeat but with those three men potentially unavailable will be concerning for the manager.
