Joleon Lescott shares potential timeline for Bamford's Leeds United return

Joleon Lescott believes Patrick Bamford will be out for weeks after he picked up an injury in the Leeds United win over Wolves.

The Whites won the game 3-2 but the England international could not complete the game as he picked up another injury.

While Jesse Marsch said that it was not too serious, Lescott, a BT Sport pundit, believes he could be out for a few weeks.

Speaking on Premier League Productions’ post-match show, he said, “It looked a bad one. He knows he’s going to be out for a while. Could be out for weeks.

“I had a similar knee injury and it could’ve been months if I did not signal to the bench.”

Hope it’s not too serious

When someone uses the term ‘weeks’ it is a tad ambiguous and it could even mean two weeks.

If Marsch said it’s not too serious that probably means that he should be back for the next game.

The international break has come at the right time for the Whites as they will have a lot of players back before their next game.

They do not play for two weeks now which means that even if Bamford was to miss 10-15 days, he should be in contention for that one.

Leeds cannot afford to take their feet of the medal, at least until they’ve secured survival for next season.

Three more wins should suffice and help them retain their Premier League status for next season.
