Phil Hay shares major Patrick Bamford injury update after Leeds striker limped off v Norwich

  • by

Patrick Bamford did not suffer any kind of injury as Leeds United beat Norwich 2-1 at Elland Road on Sunday.

According to The Athletic journalist Phil Hay on his personal Twitter account after the game on 13 March, it was always the plan for the 28-year-old striker to play 45 minutes after he went off at half-time.

Bamford was spotted limping towards the tunnel at the break but it is understood that he’s fine and “should be fine” to play against Wolves at Molineux on Friday night.

And while there’s positive news on Bamford, there’s a slight worry in regards to Rodrigo as he went off with “a tight quad muscle”.

Huge day

Leeds got three points, Everton lost, Bamford returned from injury and Joe Gelhardt made himself an Elland Road hero.

What a day it has been to be a Leeds United supporter.

Leeds have eased their relegation concerns massively by winning 2-1 against Norwich.

It was a really great game but Jesse Marsch’s men should have put it to bed way sooner than they did.

Kenny McLean’s 91st-minute goal almost put a dampener on things before Gelhardt came off the bench to score in the fourth minute of stoppage time at the end of the game.

But it was Leeds’ day and now four points separate us in 16th and 18th-placed Watford, who’d also won on Sunday by beating Southampton 2-1 at St Mary’s.

Leeds really needed that win and we also needed Bamford to come through the game unscathed because just look at how much better our attack did with him in the side in the opening 45 minutes.

Bamford’s not fully up to speed yet but once he is, the Premier League should become a much easier league to score in.

In other Leeds United news, Norwich’s coaches were “incensed” by a controversial incident in the Leeds game, a Sky Sports pundit claims.
