Leeds United take on Luton Town this weekend, knowing that a win could see them move back into the automatic promotion places, providing other results go their way.
The Whites are currently sat third in the Championship table, and will be hoping they can keep the pressure on league leaders West Brom, who are two points clear of Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
The Leeds boss has provided an update on the fitness of a number of his first team squad ahead of the game against Luton, and it was mixed news to say the least.
Injury latest ahead of Luton away – Cooper has a chance of being available. Dallas is fine after international duty. No Nketiah but he should be back in full training next week. #lufc

Bielsa revealed that both Stuart Dallas and Liam Cooper could be in contention to return to the side, despite missing their countries international fixtures recently.
But the game will come too soon for Eddie Nkeitah, who is set to return to training in the near future as he edges closer to full fitness.

leave cooper out imo don't want him getting the same injury again but worse by being out longer especially with the amount of games coming up

Could be worse with our luck haha.
Hopefully Cooper pulls through and Dallas turning out fine is great news. Hope Forshaw isn't too long now as we defo have missed him.

What actually happened to Nketiah to keep him out for so long. It must have been one hell of a challenge

Leave Cooper on bench – at best. Last thing we need is him aggravating it yet again.

I'm sensing Alioski is in the bad books after his social media 'flying' prank while injured. Thoughts Phil?

Is Forshaw dead?
