Will Leeds’ Barry Douglas cope with Jarrod Bowen against Hull?

Leeds United travel to Hull City on Tuesday night in the Championship, where the league table would suggest an away victory is very much on the cards.

But Marcelo Bielsa’s second-placed side are without a win in two games and can’t afford to take Hull lightly, despite the fact they are just outside the relegation places after the opening 10 matches.

Whites defender Barry Douglas is set to be up against it in midweek and will need to be in good form to halt Hull’s danger man.

Jarrod Bowen, 21, has been in excellent form for the Tigers recently and the right-winger is likely to be pitted directly against Leeds’ left-back Douglas.

Bowen has now scored three goals in his last four league games, which included a strike in the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough recently.


The left-footed ace has proven that he can be a serious goal threat and has the dribbling quality to hurt opponents.

Leeds have one of the outstanding left-backs in the Championship through Douglas, who has been outstanding since he joined from Wolves in the summer.

The 29-year-old has proven he is a brilliant threat going forward, but it’s likely to be his defensive qualities that are thoroughly put to the test on Tuesday.
