'Huge loss', 'Big worry' - Many Leeds fans concerned by key player update pre-Blackburn

Leeds United fans are worrying on Twitter after Stuart Dallas was confirmed as a major injury doubt for the match against Blackburn on Saturday.

The Athletic journalist Phil Hay relayed Marcelo Bielsa’s update after the 1-1 draw against Luton, saying that Dallas has a “muscle problem” and is “likely to miss” the action this weekend.

Dallas has been a contender for the player of the year award at Leeds this season.

He has made 41 appearances in all competitions, starting all 40 Championship fixtures in a number of different positions.

Bielsa has been able to rely upon the Northern Ireland international to play at right-back and left-back, on both wings and even as a central midfielder.

Not only has his versatility been brilliant but his overall performances have and his goal against Luton on Tuesday rescued a point before he was forced off with his injury.

Ezgjan Alioski will more than likely replace Dallas at left-back against Blackburn but that hasn’t stopped some Leeds fans from worrying about the fact they will be without the Cookstown Cafu this weekend.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Luckily, Liam Cooper should be fine to start against Blackburn but it is a big game and one that Leeds will want to win after failing to beat relegation-threatened Luton on Tuesday.

It wasn’t the end of the world to draw with the Hatters but let’s hope it was not the start of a decline in form.
