Leeds United’s quest to stay in the Premier League is becoming more and more difficult, with time running out for Jesse Marsch to secure the points needed.
The Whites host Brighton on Sunday afternoon, with Leeds stuck squandering in the drop zone with just two games remaining. Leeds are in the bottom three on goal difference, but have played a game more than relegation rivals Burnley and Everton.
Are you confident Leeds will stay up?
However, Marsch has been handed a boost ahead of the game though, as it appears that Jack Harrison will be available after his injury.
Speaking on his injury round-up, Sky Sports contributor Ben Dinnery looked at the team news for Marsch, saying: “Jack Harrison took a heavy knock midweek, that was scanned and got the all clear. Jesse Marsch referred to it as a heavy contusion, now again, he’s another one that should train with the group on Saturday, if he comes through that session then will be included in the matchday squad which is a big bonus with Luke Ayling and Dan James serving bans and will not feature.”
TIF thoughts on Jack Harrison’s injury…
Of course, it’s not guaranteed that he will feature but should he be fit then the timing couldn’t be better for Marsch, because as mentioned by Dinnery, they’re already depleted with suspensions. Luke Ayling and Dan James won’t feature again this season after picking up dismissals in recent games.
You’d feel Leeds will need positive results in both remaining games to beat the drop, already relying on those above them slipping up, four points or six from their remaining six available is paramount, so the potential return of Harrison to the matchday squad will come as a huge boost, as he’s been the sixth best performer in the Premier League for the Whites rating wise, as well as being the club’s second top goalscorer (WhoScored).
