Lewis Baker has to save Leeds career with cup opportunity

Leeds United travel to QPR on Sunday for the third round of the FA Cup and manager Marcelo Bielsa has already named is starting XI.

The Whites will make wholesale changes for the cup, which is understandable given they are top of the Championship and focused on a league promotion.

But it is going to present some members of the squad at Elland Road the chance to play and it may be last chance saloon for Lewis Baker.

The midfielder is set to start against QPR and a failed performance is likely to see him on the sidelines for the rest of the season.

Baker has made 13 appearances across all competitions this season for Leeds, but has mainly been used as a substitute and not been involved in the last four league games.

The Englishman proved during his time on loan with Dutch top-flight club Vitesse Arnhem that he can be a goalscoring midfielder.

He’s yet to show any kind of form to suggest he can play a serious role in Leeds’ bid for promotion, but that could turn around if he makes the most of the chance against Championship opposition QPR.
