Bamford offers Leeds United update

Patrick Bamford has yet to resume full training amid hopes he could return for Leeds United against Watford.

The striker missed Leeds‘ defeat to West Ham last weekend with an ankle injury but was hopeful of a return before the international break.

However, Bamford has revealed he is working in the gym and the pool, as things stand, rather than full training with his team-mates.

“Just doing gym, little bit of boxing today,” he told the Official Leeds United Podcast.

“Bit of swimming the other day, my shoulders are hanging off – apart from that I’m all good.”

Marcelo Bielsa will provide a full update on Bamford during his pre-Watford press conference on Thursday afternoon.

How to stop Watford danger man

Watford are Leeds United’s opponents this weekend, as the Whites look to win their first game of the season at their seventh attempt.
