Report: Leeds 28y/o suffers hamstring issue on international duty, set for checks on Weds

So, Leeds United didn’t quite escape from the international break injury-free.

Stuart Dallas, 28, was set to play for Northern Ireland against Germany on Tuesday night but pulled out with tightness in his hamstring.

He was spared a mauling, despite Northern Ireland taking the lead in the game through Michael Smith in just the seventh minute.

Serge Gnabry equalised for Germany with his first of the game in the 19th minute and went on to score a hat-trick in a 6-1 hammering.

Dallas and his teammates will now have to travel to Bosnia away in ­Sarajevo in the Euro play-off semi-final in March.

Dallas has been an integral player for Northern Ireland and played in four different positions in the 0-0 draw with the Netherlands on Saturday.

They missed him last night but now it’s Leeds fans that will be concerned for his availability for the Championship game against Luton on Saturday.

BBC journalist Adam Pope said that Dallas would be checked over by Leeds on Wednesday and said, “Hopefully not too serious”.

Northern Ireland were already assured of the play-offs before last night’s game and there is hope that his withdrawal was more precautionary.

Jamie Shackleton, Liam Cooper and Ezgjan Alioski are also doubts for Saturday and if Dallas doesn’t make it, it could mean the return of Barry Douglas at left-back.

Douglas played 45 minutes in the Under-23s at Thorp Arch on Monday but hasn’t started a game since the 2-1 win against Wigan in mid-August.
