Seriously, did someone curse this team with injuries? Voodoo spell or something? Because this team right now is running out of people to play left back.

Leif Davis, who has been brilliant at left back for the U23s is also out with an injury, so Stuart Dallas, who is not a very good left back, will get the start against Aston Villa. Gaetano Beradi played at left back for some of the past two seasons, but he’s coverage at central defence and is recovering from his own long-term injury.

Barry Douglas and Gjanni Alioski are both already out for the rest of the season and after Davis apparently underwent an operation, he’s not gonna be able to play anytime soon either.

This is bordering on the absurd right now. But then again, it’s Leeds, what did we all expect.

On to the links.
