Adam Forshaw form 'huge bonus' for Leeds United in middle of injury crisis - pundit

We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...

Adam Forshaw continues to impress Paul Robinson with the Leeds United midfielder shining in the middle of the club’s injury crisis.

Forshaw, 30, has suffered his own injury hell over the last two years but he’s returned from his lengthy lay-off in terrific form.

The ex-Middlesbrough ace was Robinson’s man of the match at Chelsea on Saturday.

However, despite Forshaw playing well, the ex-Leeds goalkeeper still feels as though Marcelo Bielsa’s midfield needs adding to in January.

“I wouldn’t be so much scared of relegation but the squad will be tested to it’s maximum like it is now,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News when asked if a lack of January signings will impact the side’s chances.

“One huge bonus has been Adam Forshaw’s form.

“He’s been absolutely outstanding in a Leeds shirt and he was man of the match at the weekend [in the 3-2 defeat at Chelsea].

“Since he’s come back into the squad, he’s been a revelation. The amount of ground he covers, the work rate he’s got and he was brilliant on Saturday.

“The squad still needs strengthening but if Phillips is going to be out for a long time, Forshaw plays in that position.”

“He’s been outstanding. He’s come back fitter than ever and he’s showing leadership qualities as well.”

Since returning from almost two years on the sidelines, Forshaw has made nine Premier League appearances for Leeds.

He’s done well in almost all of them and he’s clearly one of the fittest players in the squad right now having completed 90 minutes in five consecutive matches.

In other Leeds United news, the Daily Mail has reared its ugly head again with a disgraceful story about this Whites ace.
