Leeds United vs Plymouth Argyle injury update sees nine ruled out as Daniel Farke forced into changes

Leeds United and Plymouth Argyle will both be without a number of key players when the two sides meet on Saturday afternoon with five squad members ruled out for Daniel Farke’s side.

Farke and Steven Schumacher’s respective squads are beginning to bear the brunt of a wearisome Championship campaign, some 15 matches into the season with surgery decisions, suspensions and fatigue all issues to contend with ahead of Saturday afternoon’s kick-off.

The Pilgrims visit Elland Road for the first time since 2007 having secured promotion from League One last term and will arrive in West Yorkshire with something of a striker problem. Leeds, on the other hand, could potentially be left depleted at the back.

Fortunately, the Whites’ injury worries are not too severe and unlikely to keep the players in question out for a considerable period of time, therefore this month’s upcoming international break should offer much of the squad a reprieve from the relentless nature of English football’s second tier. However, Saturday will come too soon for many of them, Farke confirmed in his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

Here is a breakdown of which players are ruled out for Leeds United vs Plymouth Argyle, as well as those doubtful for the Elland Road meet.
