Leeds United team news as four late fitness tests set before Brighton game - Injury Expert
Four Leeds United players will undergo late fitness tests ahead of the Premier League clash against Brighton at Elland Road on Saturday 11 March, according to Ben Dinnery.
The injury expert shared that Rodrigo, Luis Sinisterra, Liam Cooper and Patrick Bamford could all potentially feature in the squad against the Seagulls in a major boost.
Javi Gracia will be sweating on the fitness of some key players who have yet to make a real impact since he arrived at the club to replace Jesse Marsch.
Dinnery shared the news on his Premier Injuries website, with Bamford seemingly the most likely to feature with a 50% chance, compared to the other three who only stand a 25% chance.
There will be two definite absentees from the squad though, as Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw continue their long-winded recovery from other injury issues.

These are issues that have really hampered this squad.
Bamford, Rodrigo and Sinisterra are three of Leeds’ biggest weapons, and some would argue our strongest front three, especially before the emergence of Willy Gnonto.
Gracia needs to find a way to get this Leeds side firing in front of goal and the answer could be staring him dead in the face right here with all three on the verge of returning.
Only one goal in our previous four Premier League games is relegation form, and the chances spurned in those outings would have easily resulted in wins given our stronger defence.
Something needs to change, and hopefully, this trio can return with a bang and make a real difference to change our fortunes, and get us out of this relegation scrap much earlier than the final day like last season.
All eyes are on Elland Road tomorrow with everything crossed for positive news.
