Milanic reveals Leeds injury problems ahead of Saturday

Leeds United boss Darko Milanic has suggested that Rodolph Austin and Billy Sharp may not be fit to face Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Leeds United manager Darko Milanic has revealed that Rodolph Austin and Billy Sharp are struggling with injuries at a press conference today.

With Souleymane Doukara suspended, after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Norwich City on Tuesday night, it was thought that Sharp would come straight into the team, but that may not be the case.

Milanic explained today that the former Southampton striker has a muscle complaint, whilst he also said that Austin did not train with the squad today.

It leaves the Slovenian with some selection dilemmas ahead of the club's match with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday and he admits that he has not decided on his starting line-up yet. 

"We have some problems with injuries," he said in his press conference. "Today, Austin was not involved in training and Billy Sharp has also problems with his muscles.

"This means that I am, in this moment, not sure who will play on Saturday."

The pressure is on Milanic to pick up a result this weekend as progress has been slow under his stewardship.

The side have only picked up three points in the five games that he has taken charge and they must return to winning ways soon if they are to meet expectations.

The Whites are currently in the bottom-half of the Championship and questions will start to be raised if they are not able to beat Wolves in-front of their own fans this weekend.
