After fresh Bielsa update ahead of Bristol City, Izzy Brown must surely be feeling desperate

Leeds United are set to be unchanged for the third game in a row this weekend when they travel to Ashton Gate to take on Bristol City.

Marcelo Bielsa is reluctant to make alterations to his starting XI or seven substitutes after last weekend’s pulsating performance in the 4-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

After a miserable defeat to Queens Park Rangers, the rout over the Baggies came – with the same team, so with the Leeds boss confident his side have shaken that bad Hoops display out of them, they can go again.

One player who will undoubtedly be frustrated with this development will be Izzy Brown.

The on-loan Chelsea man has totalled just nine minutes of competitive football this season having arrived at Elland Road injured back in August.

Since then, stints in the U23s have proved problematic with injuries galore for the 22-year-old.

But he will be wondering when his chance will come again.

Brown only game on with Leeds chasing the game and in their impeccable win over West Brom, he was not needed.

Hearing Bielsa confirm the team was unchanged would not have bothered him as he would have been told before the media knowing.

But that will have hurt Brown is surely doing all he can in training to show what he can do to get a start with Kemar Roofe out.

Patrick Bamford is in scoring form and bagged two at the weekend, so if this time around he fails to score, the Chelsea loanee will be in desperate need of a perfect week of training to get a chance to start.

He will be disappointed but knows his current place in the team, and that is part and parcel of professional football, something the youngster will have been sent out on loan to learn about.
