Oh no.

After going off injured against Derby County, Pablo Hernandez is “a doubt” for Leeds against Brentford FC this weekend. Which is really a shame, as he’s been brilliant for Leeds under Heckingbottom. He’s been starting to show some chemistry with Pierre-Michel Lasogga and he’s played just fine on the wing in the 4-4-2 that Heckingbottom prefers to play.

It will be interesting to see who takes the free kicks with Hernandez sidelined, as Alioski sent in some dreadful balls while Hernandez was out before.

On to the links.
