Adam Forshaw and Patrick Bamford ruled out in Leeds United team news v Wolves - Injury Expert
Leeds United will be without four senior players when they take on Wolves in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday (9 November), according to Ben Dinnery.
Stuart Dallas and Luis Sinisetrra were already known to be out long-term but they have now been joined by midfielder Adam Forshaw and striker Patrick Bamford.
Jesse Marsch is hopeful to have the England international number nine back fit for the next Premier League game away at Tottenham Hotspur but Forshaw is going to miss that game too.
Forshaw has had to have surgery on an ankle problem and was thought to be getting close to fitness but seems unlikely to face Steve Davis’ side in the cup.
Teenager Archie Gray could yet be involved, however, having gotten over his own ankle issues as he has been given a 25% chance of being able to feature at Molineux.
Bamford and getting injured are the most common duo in the Premier League right now and there never seems to be an end in sight for these constant problems.
The 29-year-old can not expect to be a success in the Premier League if he can’t play more than a handful of games before breaking down into a million tiny pieces.
The workload is enormous and it is heightened this year with an enforced break on the horizon to allow time for a winter World Cup in Qatar.
Bamford just can’t seem to hack the speed of the top flight and even though he got through his first season relatively unscathed, things have gone rapidly downhill since then.
His actual ability on the ball is not really significant anymore because Leeds fans only get to see it once in a blue moon as he goes from pitch to treatment table with worrying frequency.
