Jesse Marsch provides Leeds United injury update on Cooper, Summerville, Struijk and Adams

Crysencio Summerville and Liam Cooper will return to full training this weekend, according to Leeds United coach Jesse Marsch. The pair have missed Leeds’ last three games in all competitions through injury, but it seems they could be set to come back into contention to face Nottingham Forest in the Premier League next Sunday.

Cooper has been struggling with a minor knee issue and wasn’t risked against Accrington Stanley in the fourth round of the FA Cup, a game Leeds won 3-1 with Robin Koch and Max Wober continuing their partnership at the back. Summerville, on the other hand, picked up an ankle injury after a heavy tackle in the third round clash at Cardiff City and hasn’t been seen since.

However, it is hoped he can compete for a spot in Marsch’s side next weekend as the Whites go to the City Ground. United should be able to call on the services of Tyler Adams and Pascal Struijk, too, who both sat out of the clash at the Wham Stadium.

They’re due to restart training on Monday, leaving Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw as the only real senior concerns at present, having come through the fourth round tie unscathed, much to the delight of the head coach.

“I think Liam and Cree will be in training tomorrow,” Marsch said after the game on Saturday. “Tyler and Pascal may need one more day and then everyone else is looking fit and strong.

“Except for Stuart and Adam is close as well. So we're getting healthy and strong and we're equipping ourselves with some quality so it's a good feeling right now if and not just that, we're performing well match after match after match.

“I feel like we're starting to gain momentum.”
