Whilst some Leeds players are ready to go once again this weekend after injury, another has been ruled out with injury by Marcelo Bielsa today.
Pablo Hernandez, Kemar Roofe and Gaetano Berardi are all expected to be fit for this one against Rovers at Ewood Park but there are still some fitness concerns knocking around.
Indeed, Barry Douglas remains missing but it’s Jack Harrison who is the fresh blow with Phil Hay revealing Bielsa’s update on Twitter earlier on this afternoon:
Bielsa says Harrison is out of Blackburn. He has a muscular injury and will be back next week. Ayling (banned) and Douglas (hamstring) also missing. #lufc

Whilst Ayling also misses through suspension it’s clear that Harrison is one that we were perhaps not expecting.
He was starting to really shine out wide for the Whites but he is going to be missing this weekend at the very least.
It does sound as though he won’t be out for much longer after that, though, so at least that is something as we look for a strong set of results in this next round of matches.
