Bamford was substituted after 28 minutes after feeling some tightness in his adductor, Marsch said, while Gelhardt was left out of the squad altogether after suffering a dead leg.
"Joffy had a dead leg and with a bunch of midweek games coming up we didn't want to push him. He'll be training this week, I think Patrick will be training too,” the head coach said.
Bamford spent the vast majority of last season on the sidelines with a number of injuries, leading spectators of a Leeds persuasion to fear the worst when he went down during the first half at St Mary’s Stadium.
"Patrick is not bad. He felt a little tightness in his adductor. I've challenged him to be honest with us. He felt like he wasn't 100%. I think he made the right decision to come off. If it's a cup final, I think he plays,” Marsch added.
Leeds have matches coming up against Brighton and Hove Albion, Chelsea, Barnsley and Everton before the first month of the season is complete.
