Team News for Leeds United v Barnsley

Date published: 7/15/2020 1:41:38 PM

Leeds will be without Kalvin Phillips for Thursday’s home game against Barnsley, with the midfielder set to miss the rest of the season.

Phillips confirmed on social media on Tuesday that the knee injury he sustained at Swansea on Sunday would see him sit out the Championship leaders’ three remaining games as they look to seal automatic promotion.

Boss Marcelo Bielsa has suggested on-loan defender Ben White could play in Phillips’ role against the Tykes, meaning a possible recall at centre-back for Gaetano Berardi.

Bielsa reported no other major new injury concerns and said he had yet to decide whether there would be a return in goal for Kiko Casilla, who has served an eight-match ban after being found guilty of racially abusing Charlton’s Jonathan Leko.

Barnsley winger Elliot Simoes has been ruled out the game by boss Gerhard Struber.

Struber said Simoes would not be ready having picked up an ankle ligament problem from a tackle during the 0-0 draw with Wigan on Saturday.

Midfielder Romal Palmer remains sidelined due to knee ligament damage.

Struber’s side lie bottom of the table despite having been beaten only once in six games since the season resumed.

Championship Betting Tips: Leeds v Barnsley

Leeds United are one step closer to promotion and will be looking for all three points when they host bottom-placed relegation battlers Barnsley in Thursday’s Championship action.

The hosts, leaders of the Championship after winning their last three matches, need just four points from their final three matches to end their 16-year wait to return to the Premier League. 

 

The past week has demonstrated different ways to win, with their biggest win of the Marcelo Bielsa era last Thursday at home to Stoke (5-0) before they got a late winner in a scrappy match against play-off chasing Swansea on Sunday (0-1). 

 

They’ve kept the most clean sheets in the division (20) and have conceded the fewest goals (34) and will be looking to extend that run here, although they’ll have to rejig things at the back with Brighton loanee Ben White expected to move into midfield in place of injured key man Kalvin Phillips. 

 

The talismanic Pablo Hernandez is yet to start a match since the hiatus, but he’s made some game-changing contributions of late after appearing from the bench in Leeds’ last five outings. He’s scored off the bench in each of his last two appearances, including the dramatic winner at Swansea, and is 7/4 to score anytime here. 

 

Barnsley make the short trip to Elland Road needing a win at this juncture of the season. The Tykes returned to action in good form, taking seven points from QPR, Millwall and Blackburn, but they’ve since failed to win their last three and looked particularly poor in a 4-0 defeat to relegation rivals Stoke ten days ago. 

 

We recommend backing Leeds for the win here, but given they’re priced at just 2/7, you’ll have to find value elsewhere. A repeat of the 2-0 they recorded in the reverse fixture is 11/2, while for them to win and keep a record 21st clean sheet in a Championship season is 20/21.

    Leeds on the brink of promotion following unconvincing victory over Barnsley

    Leeds stand on the brink of automatic promotion after holding on for an unconvincing 1-0 win against Yorkshire rivals Barnsley at Elland Road.

    Michael Sollbauer’s own goal in the first half proved decisive and Leeds need only one more point from their last two games to guarantee their long-awaited return to the Premier League.

    But it was a disjointed, anxious, display from Marcelo Bielsa’s side, who were given plenty of scares by the Sky Bet Championship’s bottom club, who played with bucketfuls of heart in their bid to beat the drop.

    Leeds, who play at Derby on Sunday, will be assured a top-flight return for the first time in 16 years if second-placed West Brom fail to win at relegation battlers Huddersfield on Friday.

    Barnsley, who remain four points from safety with two games left, play at home against Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

    Leeds went in at the break 1-0 up, but the first half had been cruel on Barnsley, who had made life very difficult for their local rivals.

    Barnsley forward Jacob Brown should have given his side an 11th-minute lead after being played in by Cauley Woodrow’s excellent pass.

    But Brown did not trust his left foot and dragged his effort wide from a tight angle with just goalkeeper Illan Meslier to beat having lost his marker in the box.

    The visitors had been forced into some frantic, last-ditch defending before Leeds were given another let-off in the 27th minute when Mads Andersen’s flying header from Callum Styles’ corner flew inches wide.

    But Leeds broke the deadlock moments later when Barnsley defender Sollbauer diverted the ball into his own net while under pressure from Helder Costa following Patrick Bamford’s cutback.

    Jordan Williams rescued Barnsley on the stroke of half-time following the best move of the half, which ended in Jack Harrison’s low cross.

    Pablo Hernandez replaced Tyler Roberts during the break and soon after Costa made way for Ezgjan Alioski.

    Costa had gone down under a challenge from former Leeds midfielder Alex Mowatt and was later carried off the field on a stretcher.

    Leeds were given two more scares in as many minutes when angled drives from Conor Chaplin and Styles narrowly missed the target.

    Bielsa sent on Dutch defender Pascal Struijk for his third Leeds appearance in place of Harrison with half an hour left before Sollbauer’s header forced Meslier into another save.

    Barnsley goalkeeper Jack Walton saved brilliantly from Bamford after the Leeds striker had charged on to Alioski’s fine pass and at the other end Woodrow’s shot on the turn was acrobatically tipped over by Meslier.

    The tension in the stands among the Leeds hierarchy reached unbearable levels during the closing stages as the home side failed to retain possession, but they held on.
