Leeds need Barry Douglas to rediscover his form quickly

Leeds United defender Barry Douglas was an extremely popular arrival in the summer when he joined from Wolverhampton Wanderers and appeared to solve the left-back area.

The 29-year-old experienced promotion from the Championship last season and at the beginning of this campaign looked comfortable in England’s second-tier at Elland Road.

He is a left-footed ace that is a set-piece specialist and can be a great attacking threat.

But his individual form has gone downhill recently and manager Marcelo Bielsa should apply some pressure to help him get back to his best.

He’s just returned from a three-game layout in the league to take part in the 3-1 defeat to Norwich City at the weekend, who leapfrogged them in the league table.

Douglas should be reinstated at left-back despite mixed form and needs to be part of a settled backline, something which has not been regular this season.

Ezgjan Alioski is currently filling the void at left-back and has done a decent job, but Douglas should be given the chance to win back his spot and rediscover the type of form that helped him earn promotion last season.
