Leeds United vs West Bromwich(WBA) - Bielsa to stick with same side

Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed Leeds will be unchanged from the midweek defeat at QPR when they play West Brom as they look to regain top spot ahead of the weekend matches.

“It will be the same team and same bench,” said the Argentinian, who remains without top scorer Kemar Roofe.

Roofe hurt his knee in the clash with Swansea on February 13 and although he is making good progress, the 14-goal forward is not expected back any time soon.

Full-backs Gaetano Berardi and Barry Douglas were back on the bench at Loftus Road after injury, with the latter coming on for the last 25 minutes of the 1-0 defeat.

West Brom trio Jacob Murphy, Hal Robson-Kanu and Ahmed Hegazi are all back in training and will be monitored ahead of the trip to Elland Road.

Winger Murphy and forward Robson-Kanu both missed last weekend’s 1-0 Sky Bet Championship defeat against Sheffield United.

Defender Hegazi limped off shortly after the hour but all three have resumed training and may yet feature.

The Baggies have won their last three matches away from home and would close the gap on the third-placed Whites to a point with victory.
