Leeds United take on Cardiff City tomorrow night looking to advance to the fourth round of the FA Cup, with Jesse Marsch aiming to have some key players back.

The Whites welcome Cardiff City to Elland Road this Wednesday with both sides aiming to seal their progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup, having played out a thrilling 2-2 draw in South Wales previously.

Marsch is expected to field a stronger lineup this time around with Leeds knowing a cup run could help spring them into life in the Premier League too.

Leeds have been without Luis Sinisterra ever since the defeat to Fulham back in the end of October, where a foot issue has seen him sidelined for a lengthy period.

A Lisfranc injury was what the Colombia international suffered from, and it has proven to be a substantial setback for the tricky winger.

However, with this Cardiff game looming, Marsch had positive news on Sinisterra’s potential availability (via @LUFC on Twitter):

Meanwhile, Liam Cooper is nursing an injury that could keep him out of the game – confirmed by Phil Hay as a problem with his knee.

Sinisterra’s return would be such a boost to the strength of our squad going into the second half of the season.

We need to be cautious about rushing him back from such a lengthy problem though, and perhaps an outing from the bench is what he needs.

The pressure is on Marsch right now, and having one of his best attackers back in the mix could be a real boost.
