Leeds United host Wolves tomorrow with a lot of senior names sidelined, as Jesse Marsch looks to get his season off on the right foot.

Leeds have seen a lot of change in the summer with players coming in, replacing significant outgoings in the process.

They welcome Wolves to LS11 tomorrow afternoon looking for a win to get off to a quick start after struggling to get off the mark in 2021/22.

Marsch, unfortunately won’t have a fully fit squad to pick from for the game as he contends with a mixture of long-term injuries and short-term setbacks.

Here, we look at two important pieces of team news ahead of Wolves’ trip to West Yorkshire…

Luis Sinisterra

The Colombian winger didn’t have the greatest introduction to life at Leeds, as he was forced to hobble off 11 minutes into his first start of the pre-season campaign in Australia.

Despite initial fears that he could be set for a prolonged period on the touchline, Marsch offered positive news on Luis Sinisterra, sharing that he could be in full training next week and pushing to be available for the trip to Southampton (via the YEP):

“Luis on the pitch today and getting closer to his top speed, hopefully available weekend after next.”

Will Leeds beat Wolves?

Yes

No

No

Junior Firpo

A knock to Junior Firpo’s hip during the win over Blackpool at the beginning of pre-season has caused plenty of headaches in the Leeds squad for Marsch to resolve.

A transfer could be on the cards as long-term cover to Firpo, but he might not have to cope without his first-choice left-back for too much longer.

He had this to share on Firpo’s recovery:

“Firpo ahead of schedule, but he’s still probably 2-3 weeks away from match eligibility.”
