Leeds United travel to Manchester United tonight looking to spring a shock as they prepare to renew rivalries without a permanent manager in the dugout.
The board sacked Jesse Marsch on Monday following a run of seven games without a win, with the latest a 1-0 away defeat to fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest.
It means Leeds make the trip to Manchester United tonight with a search for a new manager rumbling on in the background, as Michael Skubala heads up the coaching team for the match.
The under-21s boss doesn’t have a full squad to work with as he copes with a number of injury issues still in the side.
As we look ahead to kick-off, we take a look at all the latest team news from the Leeds camp…
Rodrigo is still out and is going to be missing for weeks to come, as the club confirmed last week that an injury from the Accrington Stanley win will keep him out for two months.
Dallas is continuing to work hard to get back up to speed after breaking his leg in April 2022, seen in the gym building up strength during a training ground video last week:
Forshaw’s chances of returning this week are slim, with no update given from Skubala’s press conference on his recovery process, after a minor procedure on his hip back at the start of 2023.
Who should replace Marsch long-term?
Gray could be back in the mix very soon, with the young midfielder back in training this month after suffering from ankle problems in the back end of 2022.
Perkins, like Rodrigo, suffered an injury during the FA Cup win around 10 days ago, and Marsch had previously given him such a timescale to recover.
Koch is back in contention this evening after serving a one-match ban against Forest.
