Leeds have recalled Will Huffer from his loan spell at Barnet after academy goalkeeper Kamil Miazek sustained an injury and the 20-year-old will slot back into Carlos Corberan’s Under-23’s side.
Miazek injured a finger warming up with the development side prior to the win over Bolton Under-23’s on Monday and this leaves Marcelo Bielsa light of options between the sticks beyond Kiko Casilla.
Huffer made his first-team bow in November as injuries forced Bielsa to call upon the academy and is now set to be third-choice keeper behind Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Casilla, who departed Real Madrid to sign in January.

Meanwhile, Miazek’s injury makes him the latest in a number suffered by the Leeds squad this season that have inevitably created doubts over whether the Whites’ group of players is vast enough to cope with the Premier League – should they be promoted, that is.
The Elland Road outfit host Bolton on Saturday and will be itching to regain their seat at the top of the Championship – the pressure is on after West Brom won at QPR on Tuesday night and Bielsa’s men cannot afford to drop too many more points between now and the end of the season if they’re title and promotion hopes are to be realised.
Leeds fans on Twitter though, just seem glad that Miazek is the reason Huffer has been recalled, rather than an injury to first-choice Casilla.
Thank the Lord.

I’ve never been so happy for a player to be injured because it means it isn’t Casilla ?
