Leeds fans react to update on Bamford and Phillips’ injuries

Leeds kept pace with their promotion rivals again on Saturday, grabbing a crucial three points at Bristol City, but it’s a post-game injury update that really has fans excited.

After Norwich heaped the pressure on Leeds on Friday night, the Whites responded on Saturday with a hard-fought and professional performance at Ashton Gate.

Patrick Bamford scored the game’s only goal, bundling in from close range after a knockdown by Luke Ayling.

However, both the goalscorer and the ever-improving Kalvin Phillips appeared to pick up injuries, and Phil Hay has delivered an update on the duo.

“Bamford to have tests tomorrow. Leeds don’t think there’s any serious issue with his injured knee,” Hay tweeted on Saturday night.

He continued, reporting that Marcelo Bielsa said: “We’ll see by Tuesday how they are. I think they will be available.”

This is fantastic news, as with no Kemar Roofe to call on and no like-for-like replacement for Phillips, the pair are crucially important to the club’s promotion hopes.

Any serious damage to either player would have put a dark cloud over an otherwise perfect day, and fans are ecstatic over the update from Hay, as you can see from the reactions down below…
