Two Leeds United players have emerged from the pre-season friendly against Manchester United with war wounds. The club’s official website has given a full update on Leeds duo Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw ahead of Saturday’s clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.
During Leeds’ 4-0 defeat to Man United, Dallas was on the receiving end of a flailing arm. Anthony Martial caught Dallas as they both jumped for the ball and the Northern Irishman came off worse for wear.
Dallas had a cut above his right eye and there were concerns that he had been concussed. He was given treatment on the touchline before Bryce Hosannah took his place.
However, there is good news for the 28-year-old. It has now been confirmed that Dallas has not suffered a concussion – contrary to initial fears – and he will be available on Saturday.
Forshaw is a doubt for Leeds this Saturday after picking up an injury against the Red Devils. The 27-year-old was injured by a meaty challenge from Ashley Young, which saw the ex-England player receive a yellow card.
Leeds midfielder Forshaw will undergo treatment and he will be monitored until the weekend. Then, there will be a late fitness test to see if he can play a part against Western Sydney Wanderers.
