The only good thing about the Sheffield Untied match was the return of Jack Clarke to the lineup. While Jack Harrison has filled in while Clarke has been absent, the teenage winger has been missed. Clarke spoke about missing time while he was out recovering from illness.

Clarke told LUTV:

I love coming back in even after a week off.

I just love coming back in and being around the lads and being involved. I’ve been in the gym when I felt like I could train and play because obviously i haven’t got a muscular injury or anything, so I feel like I could have played, could have trained, but I’ve just not been able to.

It was hard to be honest, watching the lads play and do well and not being as involved as I want to be. It was difficult.

But I loved being back involved, loved being back in front of the fans at Elland Road and just loved to be back playing.

It’s good that Clarke is back, Leeds are gonna need him to be great down the stretch with eight games to go for a final push towards promotion.
