They will do so without summer signing Barry Douglas, who suffered a season ending injury at the start of last month.

 

Now into the season's final stretch, missing out is really getting to Douglas.

He sent a message out on Instagram expressing how much he is missing not being able to play.

Douglas' season was affected by three affected injuries, which made it difficult for him to show his best form.

In his last game he provided an assist for Luke Ayling, in a win over Millwall, and with Leeds' struggles to score regularly in recent games, perhaps he may have made a difference.

Last season he won promotion with Wolves. This time he can only watch on and hope.
