March in front of the press


Adam Pope, BBC Radio Leeds

Leeds United head coach Jesse Marsch will speak to the media in person at around 13:00 GMT ahead of his first game in charge at Elland Road against Aston Villa tomorrow night.

After a notable change in tactics at Leicester City on Saturday, it will be interesting to see if striker Patrick Bamford (foot) is ready to adapt to the new style with a first start in six months, or at least be available for more than the 10 minutes originally reserved for him – although he ended up being an unused substitute – at King Power.

With Tyler Roberts (hamstring) set to miss the rest of the season, Bamford and Joe Gelhardt are his only recognized alternatives in a system that accommodates two strikers.

An update on Diego Llorente’s availability after missing out recently will be requested, along with a progress report on captain Liam Cooper and midfielder Kalvin Phillips as they recover from hamstring surgery. leggings.

Marsch will be quizzed on his thoughts on Villa, who are yet to draw away and are the last team United took a point from – an entertaining 3-3 draw – ahead of their five-game losing streak .

Expect a lot of positivity from Marsch. This energy, like victory, can be contagious.
