Speaking in his post-match press-conference, via Leeds Live, Marsch admitted that the striker picked up the injury in training in the week, he said: “(Bamford) felt something in his hip when he took a penalty in the last action of training.”

Phil Hay of The Athletic also reported on the incident with Bamford, he wrote that Bamford is expected to be out for only a short period, he said: “Marsch says it’s a seven-day injury.”

Adam Pope of BBC Sport added: “Hopefully he will be fit for Spurs away next week.”
