Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa faces a selection headache for the coming months after Luke Ayling picked up an injury in the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest, with it since being confirmed that he will be out of action for at least two months.

That has left the Peacocks short of options at the back, with Gaetano Berardi also injured, and the most obvious replacement to fill the void appears to be Stuart Dallas – who is naturally a winger but can also fill in at the back when required.

However, fans on social media have made it clear they are not happy with Dallas’ performances as a defender and have urged Marcelo Bielsa to look elsewhere, as they push for young Jamie Shackleton to be handed an opportunity.

The 19-year-old has made four appearances for Leeds so far this season, contributing one assist, and plenty of supporters believe he should be handed further chances in the first-team in Ayling’s absence.

We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
