Leeds team news: Bielsa will have trio available; duo to miss out

Leeds United will travel to Blackburn Rovers in the early Championship match on Saturday afternoon following the conclusion of the international break.

The Whites will want to get back to winning ways after they were held to a draw against Brentford just prior to the two-week break.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will be looking to put the pressure on everyone else at the top of the table with a victory against the Ewood Park outfit and will have been boosted by the availability of some of his stars.

According to the club’s official website, Leeds will be able to welcome back Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez and Gaetano Berardi for the trip.

All three have been missing with injuries recently, however, their returns all come at a timely moment for the Whites.

However, the concerns continue to grow for Bielsa as he has revealed that Jack Harrison will now be out for a period of time as he picked up an injury in training.

Luke Ayling is also unavailable for selection following the red card he picked up during the game against Brentford.

The Verdict:

Leeds and Bielsa will be delighted to be able to call upon Berardi, Hernandez and Roofe once again as all three have been vital to the team’s efforts so far.

The Whites have lacked some firepower at times and Roofe will be keen to get back into the swing of things quickly, having already netted four times in his six appearances.

Hernandez will bring back some more creativity to the side, whilst Berardi will be an ideal replacement for the suspended Ayling in defence, which could be useful with Bradley Dack in fine form for the hosts.
