Monk: Dallas should be fit to make comeback in this Leeds match

By Will Butcher

Garry Monk has revealed that Leeds winger Stuart Dallas will be fit enough to return against Burton Albion.

The Northern Ireland international has been ruled out with a groin injury after picking up a knock against European minnows San Marino while on international duty.

Speaking ahead of Leeds’ Championship match against Wolves on Saturday, Monk was quoted by Leeds official Twitter account as saying that Dallas will return on October 29.

Dallas’ delayed return from injury means that he will miss Leeds’ fourth round EFL Cup tie against Norwich on October 25, as well as Saturday’s clash.

The former Brentford attacker has been one of the first names on Monk’s team sheet this season, starring on the left side of the Yorkshire giants’ attack.

Leeds’ number 15 has made nine league and cup appearances for Monk’s side this season, but is yet to score or provide an assist for his teammates.

Dallas is now in his second season with Leeds, after moving to Yorkshire last summer for a round £1million. He has since made 58 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals.

A win for Leeds could see them move to 19 points and within touching distance of the playoffs, as sixth placed Bristol City lie on 20 points.

However, a last-minute draw against Wigan on Saturday will have reduced morale in Monk’s camp and they will face a difficult task against Walter Zenga’s cash rich Wolves.
