I’m not sure we can totally breathe a sigh of relief just yet.
But at least we don’t have to start entering full panic mode, and at the end of the day, that’s just about good enough given the circumstances.
Leed united ran out 1-0 winners over Reading yesterday, with the winning goal coming from Pablo Hernandez. However, one of the bigger talking points surrounds the health of one of Leeds’ key men Kalvin Phillips. Phillips was substituted in the first half after failing to recover from a knock earlier in the game, and that left a couple of Leeds fans rather concerned. And given that Leeds lost two of the three games that he missed recently through suspension, it gave them fresh reasons to panic.

After the game though, it appeared as if everything was fine with the 24-year-old as he was seen walking around without any sort of protective gear on, which came as sweet relief to a large number of Leeds United fans.
PRAISE DE LORD.

Phillips said it was a dead leg. Was sat behind the dugout. Should be fine!

Is Phillips our most important player?
And with another crucial game coming up this week against Middlesbrough, that news is going to sound all the better.
