Pierre-Michel Lasogga and Stuart Dallas are ruled out of the Barnsley match later today.
Barnsley v Leeds United: Dallas and Lasogga to miss derby clash at Oakwell: https://t.co/oJ9Bwqnlwj #lufc pic.twitter.com/BUDwg8FB1j— YEP Sport (@YEPSportsdesk) November 24, 2017
Leeds will be missing their “star” striker Lasogga and Northern Ireland winger Dallas as the club head south to take on Barnsley at Oakwell in what should be a fairly testy derby match. Lasogga missing his third match in a row is starting to cause some concern. It’s very unfortunate that Dallas is ruled out, since he really deserves a good run in the team after his performances this season. At this point, I’d even consider playing Dallas at left back because the rest of them have been terrible up to now. It’s bad that Dallas is out. Dunno about Lasogga.
