Steve Evans gives update on Alex Mowatt ahead of Bolton clash

The 20-year-old is working hard to be back for Leeds United's next match.

Leeds United manager Steven Evans has been speaking ahead of his side’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Bolton Wanderers this weekend, and some of his comments were later posted on the Whites’ official Twitter account.

Among the things discussed by the Leeds boss was the situation regarding midfielder Alex Mowatt.

The 20-year-old has not been at his best for much of this campaign and he has recently been in and out of the squad due to injury.

However, after missing the recent games against Bristol City and Brentford it seems he may be back in contention for Saturday’s match.

Confirming he could feature against Bolton, Evans said, “He’s out with the medical team as we speak and we’ll assess him.”

Just as with another injured player – Chris Wood – Evans will not want to rush anyone back into action, but with the games coming thick and fast in various competitions he will need as many of his first-team squad as possible in the weeks ahead.

At his best, Mowatt is an exceptional talent, and there is every chance he will make a significant impact between now and May.
