Leeds United fans urge Bielsa to bring Forshaw back into the team

A broken toe in August forced Adam Forshaw to fight for his position in the Leeds United team.

Unfortunately for the midfielder, Mateusz Klich has grabbed hold of the opportunity to get in the team and isn’t letting go.

Since recovering from his injury, Forshaw has played in six Championship matches but has not started a single one of them.

In fact, across those six outings the midfielder has racked up only 90 minutes of competitive action.

On Saturday, Leeds suffered only their second league defeat of the season as they lost 2-1 to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

Forshaw was not in the squad for the encounter but after the final whistle plenty of supporters suggested on Twitter that the 27-year-old should be brought back into the team.

Bielsa’s side currently sit fourth in the table, two points adrift of leaders Middlesbrough.

On Wednesday the Yorkshire club will be back in action when they face Ipswich Town at Elland Road.
