Adding to the already large list of defensive injuries is the news broken by Phil Hay this afternoon that both Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas are looking at 6 weeks on the sidelines.
Cooper, he reports, was sent to Rome earlier today for knee surgery. Whilst Stuart Dallas is dealing with a fractured foot.
Yet more players unavailable in the defensive department was the last thing Leeds wanted. The question of more recruits in January seems out the window now and has become a necessity.
But just who will cover until we reach the new year is the worry on everyone’s lips.
