Huffer or Miazek faces baptism of fire debut without Jansson to help

Pontus Jansson is injured for Leeds. And with Bailey Peacock-Farrell also out, Kamil Miazek or Will Huffer will have to make their debut without Leeds’ top centre-back protecting them.

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has several selection dilemmas facing him ahead of this weekend’s clash with Bristol City.

Bielsa will be desperate to see his side bounce back from their 4-1 loss against West Brom with a win at home to the Robins.

But he has several injury concerns to contend with. The most worrying of which is in goal.

With Jamal Blackman returning to Chelsea with a broken leg and Bailey Peacock-Farrell out with a knee injury, Leeds have very few options between the sticks.

It means that Bielsa will have to place his faith in either Will Huffer or Kamil Miazek – even though neither player has ever played a senior game in England.

Miazek arrived at Leeds after time in Netherlands with Feyenoord and Poland with Chojniczanka.

 

The 22-year-old Poland youth international will be eager to take the starting spot, especially with his contract expiring in the summer.

Huffer could be given the nod, though. Bielsa confirmed he hasn’t decided and the 20-year-old is an England youth international who is highly rated by club and country.

But whether it is Miazek or Huffer, they will have a baptism of fire in the Championship.

Pontus Jansson is injured and Leeds only have Liam Cooper fit at centre-back. With Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi also out, it could be a very busy day for whichever Leeds youngster makes his debut.
