After Liam Cooper went down before the match at Swansea City, it was feared that he would miss a couple weeks with injury. However it now looks like he’s back in time for Friday’s match against Middlesbrough.

Berardi and Cooper have been excellent at the back so far for Leeds, and it appears that Pontus Jansson is now back to full fitness after playing in the last two matches. Cooper is reportedly fit, but it isn’t a crisis and he doesn’t have to start against Boro if he can’t play a full 90 minutes.

At least the League Cup isn’t a worry anymore.
