Bielsa confirms whether Augustin and Poveda will feature for Leeds v Huddersfield

Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that neither Jean-Kevin Augustin nor Ian Poveda will feature in the match against Huddersfield.

Augustin is still suffering from a hamstring problem while Poveda has just disappeared from the squad after featuring in the first two after he signed.

Bielsa also confirmed there were no new injury problems and that the squad would be the same as the one that beat Hull 4-0 last Saturday.

Marcelo Bielsa was talking at his pre-match press conference (live in the LUFC app, Thursdsy, 12.30pm) ahead of the game against Huddersfield at Elland Road on Saturday.

Leeds go into the game just one point behind West Ham after their 4-0 win against Hull, with the Baggies getting beaten in a shock 1-0 by Wigan.

Patrick Bamford is likely to start again on Saturday although Tyler Roberts will provide the competition after scoring two off the bench against Hull.

Leeds will already know the result of the Fulham and Nottingham Forest games by kick-off time.

Forest play Millwall on Friday night while Fulham have a trickier game away at Bristol City.

If both lose then Leeds will have the opportunity to grow the buffer to third to eight points, which would start looking unassailable at this time in the season.
