Leeds United handed potential double boost ahead of Brentford

Leeds United handed potential double boost ahead of Brentford

Leeds appear to have been handed some good news on the personnel front ahead of their meeting with Brentford this weekend.

Leeds vs Brentford

Leeds will play host to Brentford in one of several Premier League clashes taking place on Sunday.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men head into the encounter having finally put together a somewhat decent run of form.

The Peacocks have spent much of the campaign in and around the relegation zone in the Premier League. However, after winning two, drawing two and losing one of their last five, Leeds have been able to move up to 15th in the table, five points above 18th place.

And, whilst Leeds have slowly begun to find form, their upcoming opponents, Brentford, have managed quite the opposite.

The Bees had a superb start to life in the Premier League, which looked set to see them enjoy a similar season to the one Leeds had last time out, when they first gained promotion.

However, Thomas Frank’s side have now won just one of their last five, and slipped down to 12th in the English top-flight, just one point above Bielsa and co.

Leeds handed double boost?

Ahead of facing Brentford, Marcelo Bielsa would speak to the press on Friday.

And, when doing so, the Argentine delivered a positive update on Leeds pair Patrick Bamford and Luke Ayling.

The duo have been sidelined for some time now, with Bamford’s goals a big miss in a Whites side who have scored just 13 times in 14 league matches this term.

Now, though, both Bamford and Ayling look ‘likely’ to be available on Sunday:
