Loads of Leeds fans have been running the rule over their defeat to Birmingham, and they all want Adam Forshaw to start in midfield against Sheffield Wednesday.

Forshaw had only played 18 minutes of football this season before his introduction on Saturday, and the experienced midfielder had a very positive influence on the match.

The 26-year-old, who racked up over 80 league appearances for Brentford and over 70 for Middlesbrough, replaced Mateusz Klich in the second half of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat.

Klich has of course been in the form of his life so far this season, but Bielsa’s squad is already running thin, and fans are calling for more rotation to avoid any further injuries.

The trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night offers Leeds a chance to immediately redeem themselves, and fans want Forshaw to start to help stifle the Owls’ key man Barry Bannan.
