Leeds United host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday afternoon in the Championship – and a portion of the club’s supporters on Twitter have requested that defender Barry Douglas gets approval in the beginning XI.
The Whites go into the end of the week top of the league table on goal difference, while adversaries Sheffield Wednesday sit eighth only two points adrift of the play-offs.
It’s an essential Yorkshire derby at Elland Road and the teams played out a 0-0 stalemate in the reverse fixture prior in the season.
Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has some significant decisions to make with his team, particularly in the left-back position.
Douglas grabbed the attention at the end of the week’s 1-0 FA Cup third-round defeat to Arsenal, just as coming off the bench to impress in the past league fixture against second-placed West Brom.
The 30-year-old has impressed of late in the left wing-back role and has hit form in the beginning stages of 2020.
Yet, teammate Ezgjan Alioski has had the edge in the fight for the full-back position commonly over the past couple of months.
A selection of Leeds supporters via social media believe that in-form Scotsman Douglas merits his spot in the team on Saturday.
