Leeds United were left sweating after the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest as Luke Ayling picked up what appeared to be a serious injury.

With defensive choices already slim for Marcelo Bielsa, the setback for Ayling is another blow to the Peacocks’ promotion charge and the club issued an update on the 27-year-old on Monday – confirming his absence.

Leeds are set to be without their influential man for the next two months and, although that is a major setback, many fans on social media were relieved to see that the update provided news that was nowhere near as bad as they initially feared.

Some believed they would not see Ayling until the end of the season and pointed out that January will be a crucial period in Bielsa’s promotion charge, as they provided a positive spin on what is a disappointing piece of news.

We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
