Leeds United winger Mateusz Bogusz was a curious absence from the under-23s starting line up against Sheffield Wednesday this morning.

The Yorkshire Evening Post's match preview had suggested the young Pole was set to be involved.

 

One possible reason is that the January signing from Ruch Chorzow is being saved for the first team tomorrow night.

Leeds are a winger down after the club confirmed Jack Clarke will miss the midweek game with Swansea after falling ill during the game with Middlesbrough last week.

One replacement option is Robbie Gotts, who was named as a starter for the under-23s.

Bogusz was rested entirely, which either means he is being saved, or Leeds don't believe he is ready yet. 

Leeds missed out on signing Swansea winger Dan James on transfer deadline day.

Bogusz was the one winger Leeds did sign, and it would be an ideal response to utilise him against the Swans at Elland Road tomorrow night.
