Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to some comments from Marcelo Bielsa’s pre-Brentford press conference, as the boss confirmed Barry Douglas will miss the top of the table clash.
Leeds fans were fearing the worst when Doulgas left Tuesday’s win at Hull with an injury, and Bielsa has confirmed he is not available this weekend.
The boss said it was a “muscle problem” after the 1-0 win over Hull, and Leeds will now have to face high-flying Brentford without several first team stars.
Many fans felt they did not add enough depth in the summer transfer window, and the injuries to Kemar Roofe, Gaetano Berardi, Pablo Hernandez and now Douglas would certainly lend themselves to that theory.
Perhaps the one piece of good news is that the international break will give all four players an extra two weeks of recovery.
The injury to Douglas should also hand a chance to Tom Pearce, who excelled during his brief spell at left back towards the end of last season.
Fans are not happy with the mounting injuries though, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Tom Pearce please, thank you.
