Phil Hay shares injury update on Rasmus Kristensen ahead of Leeds United v Nottingham Forest clash
Leeds United are reportedly indicating that Ramus Kristensen should be available for the game against Nottingham Forest on 12 September.
According to the Athletic’s Phil Hay, the Danish defender missed the defeat against Brentford as he picked up a knock.
This saw Cody Drameh drafted into the eleven with Luke Ayling on the bench.
Hay wrote on 3 September, “He’s got a knock. Leeds indicating he’ll be back for Forest.”
Kristensen hasn’t been one of Leeds’ shining stars this season, but he’s still adapting to a new league and has been trusted to be the first choice from day one.
Ayling’s injury has not helped him either as Jesse Marsch did not have the option to rotate between his two right-backs.
Drameh did not have the best of games against Brentford and it remains to be seen with Kristensen possibly set to return, which option Marsch goes for.
Trusting Ayling to play the full 90 minutes may be a risk that they might not be willing to take so we expect the Dane to start.
Either way, the Whites are finally getting all their players back to full fitness and must use the Forest clash as a way to return to form.
The Bees defeat highlighted some glaring flaws in the system which Marsch now has the time and hopefully the players to address and return to winning ways.
