Wootton out but Byram, Warnock and Mowatt back

Wootton out but Byram, Warnock and Mowatt back

Brian McDermott expects defender Scott Wootton to be out for up to three weeks after suffering an ankle injury at Charlton Athletic before the international break.

Wootton was forced off at half time in the 4-2 win at the Valley and McDermott says the young defender is struggling.

Speaking on LUTV, McDermott said, "Scott Wootton is struggling with injury. He could be out for two to three weeks, we will have to wait and see."

New signing Marius Zaliukas came on to replace Wootton at Charlton and he is expected to continue in the side in his absence.

Better news is that McDermott expects Sam Byram, Stephen Warnock and Alex Mowatt to be fit in time for Leeds next game against Middlesbrough on Saturday after they all missed the win at Charlton through injury.
