Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa confirmed in today’s press conference that the club had no fresh injury concerns going into this weekend’s tie with West Bromwich Albion.
Confirming that Patrick Bamford, Gaetano Berardi, Luke Ayling and on-loan Izzy Brown were the only players still ruled out as they continue their own rehabilitation, it’s very much a case of as we were for this clash.
Ahead of the presser though, striker Bamford took to social media to give his own little fitness update.

Whilst there’s no time frame yet for a proper return, other than the basic New Year comments, the 25-year-old is obviously edging nearer to a return now so hopefully he won’t be too far off. Fans reacting on social media certainly hope so.
Can't wait to see you back ????????

Keep going fella. We've not forgotten you; be great when you're back but make sure it's not rushed for the sake of it.

The £7million signing hasn’t yet shown us what he’s capable of in our shirt, but plenty believe he’s going to be a massive player for us when he gets up and running properly.
