Leeds United come into this week looking to appoint a new manager while hoping for a turnaround in form as they take on back-to-back fixtures against Manchester United.
A defeat to Nottingham Forest was the last straw for the Leeds board with Jesse Marsch losing his job today.
Leeds now face the second half of the season with survival in mind once again and whoever the new manager is will have his work cut out to arrest such a poor run of form.
That new manager won’t have a fully fit squad to pick from heading into a crucial period of games, starting with a double-header against Manchester United.
Here, we look at all the latest injury and team news from the Leeds camp as February looks to be another busy month…
The striker was ruled out for two months last week as he picked up an injury during the FA Cup win over Accrington Stanley.
Aaronson was an unused sub during the defeat at Forest, as it was revealed post-match that he was hospitalised last week with appendicitis, but clearly recovering well:
Like Rodrigo, Sonny Perkins also came off the bench in the FA Cup and picked up an injury, but is not expected to be out much longer is it was revealed to only be a 10-day setback – per Premier Injuries.
Summerville made his comeback from injury in the second half on Sunday as he came off the bench against Forest, his first appearance since the first meeting with Cardiff City in January.
Who should replace Marsch long-term?
Forshaw still remains on the sidelines after his hip issue needed a minor procedure to correct, and there hasn’t been an update on when we could see him back.
Dallas is also still working hard to get back to full speed after breaking his leg back in April, and was spotted in the gym during a Thorp Arch training video last week:
Robin Koch should be back this week after serving his one-match ban against Forest for picking up five yellow cards.
