Leeds United have been very unlucky with their injuries this season.

Throughout their campaign, the Whites have missed several key players through injuries for a long period of time. In fact, the Yorkshire club are facing a crisis at the back with the likes of Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas currently out injured.

However, there is a potential injury boost, as Tom Pearce could return to action shortly. Pearce posted a message to Leeds fans on Instagram as he continues his recovery from a foot injury.

The 20-year-old has been sidelined for about a month with the foot injury problem. He missed five Championship fixtures since his injury, but Leeds have picked up four wins in those games.

Pearce wrote “Can’t wait to get back out on the pitch with the lads” hinting he is due to return to action sooner rather than later.

The youngster has played the second fiddle role to summer signing Barry Douglas who has impressed on the left side of defence.

Pearce has managed nine Leeds appearances in total since making his debut last season. His return to fitness will give Bielsa the much needed depth and cover at the back.
