We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Leeds United...

Leeds United defender Joe Rodon appears to be more any hamstring injury scares sustained v Huddersfield, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.

The injury expert believes that he should not have any issues and thus feature in the game against Plymouth Argyle on 11 November.

Daniel Farke revealed that the Tottenham Hotspur defender had issues with his hamstring in the 4-1 Huddersfield win and had to be taken off.

Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, said about Rodon:

Sounds like he probably felt some fatigue and/or tightness in that hamstring due to a recent high workload.

The player would’ve gone through further testing and seen how he responded to training to gauge availability

The fact he played after that and saw out the entire game, he should be good for the upcoming games.

A few days after his scare, Rodon played the entire 90 minutes as his side beat Leicester City 1-0 at the King Power Stadium.

He came through that game unscathed and unless something happens in training in the days building up to the game, he should be in the eleven next weekend.

Rodon has been in exceptional form for the Whites this season and has made the right centre-back role his own at Elland Road.

In other Leeds United, the Whites may turn to signing a new left-back in January who’s a long-term target and the ideal Junior Firpo replacement.
