It looks like Leeds will be down at least one more player for the second leg of the Championship playoff semifinal.
Big praise for Jamie Shack and Roofe. Forshaw unlikely to be fit for Wednesday, Bielsa not sure about Jansson at this stage. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) May 11, 2019
It seems that Forshaw isn’t going to be available for Wednesday’s match, which would be a bigger deal if Jamie Shackleton didn’t step in and play brilliantly. Unless Tyler Roberts is fit, there is a very big chance that Shackleton gets the start, which is pretty huge for the 19 year-old midfielder.
