Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to another major setback, as Luke Ayling will be sidelined for two months with a knee injury.
Leeds fans were concerned before the season started that they didn’t have enough squad depth, and those concerns have already been justified.
The Whites have just been boosted by the returns of Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe, but are now expected to be without Ayling for a considerable amount of time.
The ever-popular defender left the 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest in the first half, and the club have now confirmed that he will be out for two months.
Ayling has damaged his MCL on his right knee, and Bielsa is now down to barebones in the full-back position.
There are hopes that Barry Douglas will return at left-back very soon, but Ayling’s setback is a major concern.
He hasn’t quite been at his best this season, but it was his injury that sparked last season’s awful run of form, and Bielsa will have to work his magic to avoid a similar meltdown.

Can we recall Lewie Coyle

Think people need to calm down a little bit, could have been and looked a lot worse then 8 weeks! He’ll be back January when it’s the most critical time of the Season.

Aye, bloody gutting for Luke! One of our consistent players! We will have to sign a few now in Jan

To be fair; this isn’t great news but it could have been a lot worse. Hopefully have him, Brown and Bamford back for the start of January?
In the meantime it’s a big blow especially with Berardi still out. The amount of injuries we’ve had this season already is concerning

Goes to show working with a small quality squad and getting players in on loan who are already injured bites you in the arse
