Tom Pearce will miss Leeds United’s trip to West Bromwich Albion tomorrow with a bruised foot.

The left-back sustained the injury at the start of this week but is set to resume full training during the international break.

Pearce has made only four appearances this season and last played in a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest, a game in which he appeared as a substitute before being replaced himself.

He was missing from Leeds’ U23s defeat to Crewe Alexandra on Monday and is not expected to feature in Marcelo Biesla’s squad at West Brom.

The 20-year-old was pictured with a protective boot on his left leg at the switching on of Leeds’ Christmas lights last night but a bruised metatarsal is not expected to sideline him beyond this weekend.
