Leeds set to be without Forshaw and Hernandez for West Brom clash
Leeds look set to be without Adam Forshaw for the meeting with West Brom on Tuesday, according to BBC reporter Adam Pope. The former Middlesbrough man is still to get over an injury he picked up prior to the last international break and as such, he remains a major doubt to face the Albion.
Meanwhile, Pablo Hernandez will also be absent from the Leeds squad for the visit of Slaven Bilic’s side on Tuesday.
The playmaker missed the weekend trip to Charlton with a muscular problem and the Marcelo Bielsa confirmed in his pre-match press conference that the Spanish star is still in the final stages of his recovery and as such, he will miss the clash with the Baggies.

Hernandez and Forshaw’s absence will come as a blow to United, who’ll be looking to take all three points from a team who look like they’ll be pushing for promotion come the end of the season.
Bielsa still has plenty of quality available and Leeds will still fancy their chances of winning the game, but West Brom are a strong side and United will need to play well to take all three points.
