With Leeds United getting back to winning ways last Saturday as we hosted Bristol City at Elland Road and took a 2-0 victory with goals coming from Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez, it’s a quick turnaround in the fixture list and tonight sees us host Reading on home soil once again.

Monday afternoon saw manager Marcelo Bielsa conduct his usual pre-game press conference and our injury situation is not improving as he ruled centre-half Pontus Jansson out of this tie and admitted he remained a doubt for next weekend’s clash against Sheffield United.

The 27-year-old Swede missed out in the game against the Robins having picked up his injury in the defeat to West Bromwich Albion and unfortunately the November international break wasn’t long enough to get him back into contention.

We can welcome back goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell though according to the gaffer as he spoke to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“Jansson won’t be available and Bailey can be a starter tomorrow. At the beginning, Jansson was supposed to be available for last Saturday and then tomorrow but it was not the case and that’s why I would like to be cautious before saying he can play next Saturday.”

Fans were rightly concerned about the potential severity of the issue given it didn’t clear up as expected.
