LEEDS United have been boosted by the news that Tommaso Bianchi’s injury is not as bad as first feared.
Bianchi was believed to have suffered season-ending knee ligament damage during last week’s 2-0 win at Reading and the Italian will still need an operation.
But while no specific time scales have been given, the midfielder is now expected to be back in contention before the end of the campaign.
United’s under-21s play Sheffield Wednesday under-21s at Elland Road on Tuesday where Adryan is expected to be the star attraction (kick-off 1pm).
Admission costs £3 for adults and £1 for juniors.
