Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn gives injury update on Austin, Bellusci and Warnock

It looks like one is fine, one is a maybe and one is a definite no-go for Saturday.

Leeds United face Nottingham Forest on Saturday in what is perhaps the biggest clash in The Championship in regards to club size and prestige.

The early kick-off tie will be treated as a massive event for both teams and Leeds boss Neil Redfearn got some good news ahead of the fixture.

He finally got the assistant manager he has been pushing for, as Steve Thompson finally arrived from Huddersfield Town.

But what sort of news did Leeds have regarding injury problems.

Last weekend saw Redfearn accuse Rodolph Austin for being unprofessional, after declaring himself unfit with an ankle problem in the warm-up despite previously saying he was fit to play. He was also dealt a blow with Stephen Warnock limping out of proceedings. Meanwhile the fitness of Giuseppe Bellusci continues to concern Leeds fans, who can't wait to have him back in action.

Well it was mixed news all round....

So it seems Warnock is fine and Austin is a strong maybe but Bellusci, is once again seemingly absent for Leeds United.
