We can now add Chris Wood to the list of players who will be watching come Saturday. The club are hopeful the injury isn’t too bad but we all know how awkward hamstrings can be, with Chris Wood especially. The news comes after the striker bagged his 14th goal of a brilliant season so far.

Chris Wood smashed home the opener on Tuesday night but he won’t be doing it again on Saturday by the sounds of things. Garry Monk confirmed he is a major doubt but that he was hopeful it wasn’t as bad as first feared. It leaves Monk with a dilemma ahead of a game that we will be looking at taking maximum points from. Marcus Antonsson is fit after a back injury and Souleymane Doukara is fit and in good form, probably the most likely option.

Kalvin Phillips will return to the squad after suspension and could well start the game alongside the in-form Ronaldo Vieira after Liam Bridcutt played more than expected on Tuesday night. Pablo Hernandez is back in training but won’t make the game on Saturday. Eunan O’Kane isn’t fit and could need an operation. Wood is set for more scans the week to determine the full extent of his hamstring.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
