Luis Sinisterra is set to return to the Leeds United squad for the Premier League clash against Bournemouth on Saturday 5th November, according to Ben Dinnery.
The injury expert shared his expected return date of this weekend after the South American missed the trip to Liverpool last time out with a foot issue.
Unfortunately, the game looks as though it could come too soon for Adam Forshaw and Archie Gray, who will join Stuart Dallas on the sideline as ruled out.
Sharing the news on his Premier Injuries website, Dinnery reported that Sinisterra is 50% ready to go so it looks as though a spot on the bench may be waiting.
Despite there being no pencilled-in date for Gray to return, it looks as though Forshaw could be back for the Carabao Cup clash with Wolves on Wednesday 9th November.
This is brilliant for Leeds.
Having your marquee summer signing ruled out is never ideal, but the young lads such as Crysencio Summerville and Wilfried Gnonto certainly stepped up at Anfield.
Jesse Marsch will likely stick with the same side that beat Liverpool, meaning that Sinisterra may have to come off the bench to make an impact at Elland Road.
With Forshaw and Gray also around the corner from being fit though, outside of Dallas, Leeds are going to have many options to finish the first part of the Premier League season strongly.
Bournemouth and Spurs, sandwiched by that cup game with Wolves will be targeted to pick up maximum points going into the World Cup break.
Marsch knows he needs more results, and if we can finish mid-table with some breathing space to the bottom three, that would be absolutely perfect.
Sinisterra will certainly help that and will be chomping at the bit to get going.
