Leeds fans react as Ayling faces two months out

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.
