Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa should unleash fresh Jack Harrison v Bolton
Leeds United’s Jack Harrison is enduring arguably his most frustrating spell to date during his season-long loan spell at Elland Road from Manchester City.
The 22-year-old winger has been an unused substitute in the last three consecutive Championship matches and has watched his team cope extremely well without him.
But the Whites travel to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday for a league fixture and manager Marcelo Bielsa should unleash a fresh Harrison on them.
Harrison is a left-footed wide man with great trickery and work-rate, but with just one goal is still waiting for life with the Yorkshire giants to fully ignite.
He showed during his time with New York City FC that he can be a regular goalscorer and chief creator, which is why Bielsa needs to give him another chance reestablish himself in the team.
Harrison can certainly inject an extra attacking edge compared to teammate Ezgjan Alioski, who is a favourite of the manager in the starting XI on the left wing.
Alioski continues to keep his spot in the team without any real justification and his creativity has certainly dried up in the past month.
Bielsa should inject some freshness to his side for the weekend and a Harrison with a point to prove could be a real dangerous weapon to exploit.
Bolton are struggling down in 23rd place in the Championship table and it could be a perfect fixture for Harrison to regain some form.
