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.
Douglas looked a shadow of himself around the festive period with some real uncertain defensive moments and he’s struggled at times with his back to goal.
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.
