Leeds boss Marsch eases Bamford injury concerns

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch has played down injury concerns for Patrick Bamford.

The Whites came from 3-1 down at Elland Road to win 4-3 against Bournemouth and pick up their second straight Premier League win in the most thrilling fashion.

However, Bamford wasn’t involved at all against the Cherries after picking up a slight hip issue on Friday.

“Yeah, he took a penalty literally in the last action of training yesterday and then felt something in his hip,” Marsch explained after watching his side see off Bournemouth and move up to 12th in the Premier League table. “So they think it’s like a seven-day injury.

“We’ll see how it pans out for the week and if we can get them ready for Tottenham.”
