Patrick Bamford gives Leeds injury blow

Patrick Bamford gives Leeds injury blow

Leeds United will look to carry on their fine start to the Championship season under Marcelo Bielsa, however, they may be without one man for their trip to Millwall at the weekend.

According to Phil Hay, Patrick Bamford is still being assessed for an injury he picked up whilst playing for the club’s under-23 clash with Bristol City.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist also revealed on Twitter that the club are hopeful the injury picked up by their summer signing is not serious.

Bamford had looked in good form for the Whites during the developmental game against the Robins, where he netted a goal, before having to limp off.

Bielsa’s side will be looking to restart their Championship campaign with a victory against Millwall, as they look to continue their push for a place in the Premier League next season.

The Verdict:

There will be some concern surrounding Bamford’s injury, despite him not being selected to lead the line when it comes to the Championship fixtures.

Kemar Roofe has been loving life under Bielsa, and the Argentine could decide to stick with him up front, therefore not risking the former Middlesbrough striker when they face a tough trip to Millwall.

However, the Whites will be fearful that the injury could be serious and will be hopeful that Bamford can make a swift return to action in the very near future.
