Injuries leave Leeds Chief boss Sam Zajac with late selection calls to make
SAM ZAJAC will make game-day decisions on two key players ahead of tonight’s clash against Peterborough Phantoms.
Import forward Andres Kopstal, who missed both the defeat in Telford and the subsequent 4-2 defeat at Milton Keynes Lightning 24 hours later, is unlikely to be rushed back if another week off will help his recovery.
“It’s a big blow to be without Bobby for so long,” said Zajac. “He has been solid back there for us this season and has logged a lot of minutes for us. It’s day-to-day for Duncs and we’ll just have to make a decision on the day.”
By contrast, third-placed Peterborough have been bolstered by the addition to their roster of Nottingham Panthers’ defencemen Josh Tetlow and Joe Hazeldine.
