Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has provided supporters with a mixed injury update heading into their game against Blackburn Rovers this weekend.
The Whites head into the game sat third in the Championship table, and will be hoping to keep the pressure on league leaders West Brom with a positive result at Elland Road on Saturday.
But Bielsa is set to be without a number of first team players for the game against Tony Mowbray’s side, although Barry Douglas is one of those that is set to be available for selection.
Speaking in a pre-match press conference, Bielsa revealed that his side will be without Eddie Nketiah, Ezgjan Alioksi and Jamie Shackleton this weekend.
But he has been handed a fitness boost with the news that Barry Douglas has returned from his injury lay-off to be fit in time for the game against Blackburn.
Plenty of the Elland Road faithful took to Twitter to issue their thoughts on this latest injury update.

Smells fishy to me. He only reported it when he got home Friday evening after training and now it's a 4 week injury

News of Douglas being available is very much 'meh'. Never thought I'd feel that way when we signed him from Wolves amidst much fanfare.
