The Ivorian defender and club captain is hopeful of a return v Hull City.

Leeds United face off against Hull City this weekend with a win on the agenda after two disappointing defeats in their last two fixtures.

The losses against Rotherham United and QPR have put a dampener on a positive start under the management of Steve Evans and in Hull they face a team gunning for promotion.

One player they could do with returning is club captain Sol Bamba. The Ivorian defender has missed the last two games with a toe injury and he would certainly help things out at the back.

Bamba is however hopeful of returning for the game.

Now the Leeds United official Twitter account has published a picture of their captain in training ahead of his potential injury comeback this weekend.

Bamba is not assured of his return tomorrow. He is still being assessed and it could be Giuseppe Bellusci and Liam Cooper will continue at the back until Evans is certain that Bamba is fully fit and ready for his return to first-team action, rather than risk any further injury problems.
