Leeds boss Bielsa gives injury update ahead of Blackburn clash

Leeds United boss Marco Bielsa has said that his team will be without three players for Saturday’s game against Blackburn Rovers.

The Whites have started this season on fire, winning six of their opening 12 league games, and have lost just once in the league under new boss Bielsa.

However, the Elland Road outfit will have to cope with the losses of Luke Ayling, Barry Douglas, and Jack Harrison for Saturday’s clash.

“We had a group of players who needed to get some rest, the other group needed the opposite thing and the third group were the international players which we now have back with us,” Biesla told Leeds official website.

“Gaetano Berardi, Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe will all be available for Saturday’s game.

“We also have some players who will miss the game though, Luke Ayling, Barry Douglas and Jack Harrison are unavailable.

Former New York City number one draft pick Harrison joined the club on loan this season from Premier League champions Manchester City, after spending a short time on loan with Middlesbrough last season.

However, the midfielder will be missing for Saturday’s game.

“Jack has a muscular injury, it is not a serious injury because he will be back with us next week, but it will prevent him from playing in the next two games.

“We always seem to have an average of four or five players missing, but the three players coming back are important for us.
