Pontus Jansson doubtful for Leeds’ encounter with Ipswich

Pontus Jansson doubtful for Leeds’ encounter with Ipswich

Leeds United will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Blackburn Rovers last weekend when they meet Ipswich Town on Wednesday.

The Whites are still within touching distance of the leaders in the Championship as results went their way and they will be watching tonight’s matches with a keen interest.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have started to get some of their key men back in recent days following an injury hell, however, it appears that one key man could now be missing for the visit of the Tractor Boys.

According to Phil Hay, the Yorkshire Evening Post journalist believes Pontus Jansson is doubtful for the game on Wednesday night.

The Sweden international defender’s wife has recently given birth to a baby girl in his homeland and it remains to be seen whether he will travel back to England and be available for the match.

The Verdict:

Jansson has been a key player for Leeds since joining them and has been influential once again this season for Bielsa’s side and his potential absence would be a huge blow to their chances on Wednesday if he were unavailable.

Following the birth of his first child, you would forgive him for staying at home and spending as much time as possible during the first few days of her existence.

There is still a chance that the Swede could feature, as he has not officially been ruled out, however, Liam Cooper and Gaetano Berardi should prove to be suitable cover for him if he did miss the game.
