So the injury list is piling up for Leeds.
It’s bad enough that Luke Ayling hasn’t been available since New Year’s Day, but to add insult to the injury list, captain Liam Cooper and midfielder Adam Forshaw are looking likely to be out against Fulham.
Leeds have been missing key players through injury and suspension during calendar year 2018, and those that have been injured are taking awhile to recover. Kemar Roofe has been out for weeks, Tyler Roberts, who came in January, hasn’t played yet, and Laurens De Bock is unavailable through injury (although, to be fair, that might not be a bad thing).
So a less than 100% Leeds team will be taking on a Fulham team that hasn’t lost in months. Great.
