Leeds fans delighted with Ayling return

Leeds fans have finally got some good news to look forward to, as Paul Heckingbottom confirmed Luke Ayling is back in training.

Plenty of things have gone wrong at Elland Road this season, but one of the overriding problems at the club has been injuries.

Players like Tyler Roberts and Aapo Halme were signed in January despite already having injury concerns, and at this point it’s easier to ask which Leeds players haven’t been injured this season than which ones have.

Luke Ayling’s ankle injury was a huge blow to the season, and the side has looked much worse defensively without the 26 year-old.

Matthew Pennington filled in at right back last weekend against Barnsley, and Stuart Dallas hasn’t exactly impressed in his short stint at the back before that.

Ayling’s return will be a huge boost for Heckingbottom’s side going into next season, as it is no coincidence his injury coincided with the total loss of form after Christmas.

With nothing really left to play for, it is probably unlikely that he’ll play too much before the end of the season, but nonetheless fans are excited about the return of the right back.
