Leeds United

Defender injury worry

1st April 2019, 16:01 by Nick Harris

Leeds must check on the fitness of Barry Douglas ahead of the clash with Birmingham at the weekend.

Douglas has had an injury-plagued season since joining the club last summer and had only just returned to the side at the weekend, but he picked up a knock in the win over Millwall and will now undergo a scan ahead of the Blues match.

Leeds boss Marcelo Biesla had hoped to have a fully-fit squad available at the weekend, but that is now looking unlikely although they will not know until they have had the scan results returned.
