Leeds United: Fit-again Forshaw enjoys Millwall comeback if selected

Leeds United: Fit-again Forshaw enjoys Millwall comeback if selected

Adam Forshaw admitted that a comeback in front of a sold-out Millwall audience on Saturday would introduce him into a unique rivalry while he waited until Marcelo Bielsa ended his injury layoff.

Forshaw is offering the Leeds squad for the first time this season on the new den after he returned from the broken foot that put him offside in July. The midfielder watched from the stands while Leeds climbed to the top of the champions table last month with an unbeaten six-game performance, but he has strengthened Bielsa's team in the same week that the United head coach lost £ 7m striker Patrick Bamford to a serious knee problem.

Bamford will miss the next four months with damage to a posterior cruciate ligament, which puts Leeds at the forefront of a lack of proven competition for Kemar Roofe.

The club is not expected to be covered by the coupling of free agents on the market, with Bielsa planning to use the youngsters Tyler Roberts, Ryan Edmondson and Jack Clarke until the turn of the year.
