Hi Folks,

Leeds play their last game before a two week International break without arguably their best three players.

As we know, Roofe and Hernandez (as well as Berardi) have been on the treatment table for the best part of a month. Now we can add Douglas to the casualty list.

The Scottish International was obviously in discomfort during the latter stages of the Hull match, and was duly substituted.

Tom Pearce or Stuart Dallas look set to deputise.

Brentford currently occupy the last play off spot. They are the draw specialist in the Championship having drawn 5, won 4 and lost twice.

Won't be easy especially without what is now four of the first-team missing

Definitely not an easy game and (apart from Preston game) have been finding it hard to hit the net at home.

Phil Hay posted up some interesting stats earlier which show just how close both teams are in terms of shots, assists, pass completion etc. Has the makings of a very good game. Hoping for 3 points at home, but a draw would not be the end of the world.

So has Roberts got a toe/foot injury then or will he play through the pain again?
Is it possible they could start Clark?

every game from now on in going to be tough . we a massive scalp even more so this year. dont like these 1230 kick offs always seem to lack atmosphere and fairly rare to see a really good game. a big blow about dauglas but dallas or pearce will hopefully be sufficient cover. be an open game which will play into our hands . they seem to gone of the boil of late but they will be well up for this no doubt . a hard fought win 1-0 or 2-0 .

Very concerned now about this.

Hernandez, Roofe, Bamford, Berardi out

Now we add Douglas and maybe even Jansson if Mrs Jansson has the baby?

And Roberts has a poorly toe, that could flare up and thats him out to. :(

No worries Pontus is a perfectionist and he’s timed the delivery during the international break

We had better get the left back position sorted out cos Sergi Canos is big trouble for us on the wing.

Two of the best footballing sides in the Championship, on paper should be a cracker. Our Sheffield Wednesday performance will hopefully be recreated today and we’ll just shade it 2-1 in a frenetic game.

PS. Leon I didn’t know Norwich had moved round the corner to Carrow Lane.. :)

BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"
