Report: Leeds suffer big double blow ahead of Swansea clash

Leeds United have a handful of injury concerns ahead of Wednesday's night's game against Swansea City.

According to a report from Leeds Live, Leeds have been dealt a double blow ahead of their clash with Swansea City on Wednesday night, with the news that both Barry Douglas and Jack Clarke will miss the game.

The Whites currently sit in second spot in the Championship table, two points adrift of league leaders Norwich City, and three clear of third placed Sheffield United, but their recent form will undoubtedly be a concern for Marcelo Bielsa.

 

Leeds have taken just four points from their last four league outings, and unfortunately for them, Norwich seem as though they have been getting stronger with every week that passes.

It will be absolutely paramount for the west Yorkshire outfit to beat the Swans, but it seems as though they will have to without two of their key men.

Leeds Live report that Barry Douglas and Jack Clarke will not be ready in time to take on the Welsh outfit.
