‘Exactly the line up it should be’ – These Leeds fans are delighted with XI as Bielsa forced into changes for Derby clash



Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has made two forced changes for tonight’s second leg Championship play-off semi-final against Derby.

The Whites have a one goal lead going into the clash, thanks to a fine strike from Kemar Roofe, however the forward misses out tonight with a calf injury.

He has been replaced by Patrick Bamford, who is available after serving a two-game ban for deceiving a match official.

Elsewhere, midfielder Adam Forshaw is out after picking up a knock at Pride Park and Jamie Shackleton is handed a chance in midfield, after impressing as a sub when the former Middlesbrough man went off on Saturday.

The other notable bit of team news is that influential defender Pontus Jansson is back in the squad but he has had to settle for a place on the bench, with Gaetano Berardi continuing at centre-back alongside Liam Cooper.

Otherwise, they’re unchanged and the fans are pleased to see Shackleton get a chance and with the XI selected by Bielsa.

Here’s some of the reaction on twitter…
