The Whites are currently toiling in the drop zone and are on course to slip down to the Championship, just two seasons after returning to the top flight.


In addition to a leaky backline, goals have come at a premium for Leeds this season and first choice hitman Bamford being sidelined for the majority of the campaign owing to niggling injury issues has played a part in their struggles, although he is believed to be closing in on a return to the first team fold.



Leeds only have two games remaining this season and they are desperate for points, but Marsch has remained coy on whether Bamford will be available for selection for either outing.


Marsch stressed that the striker, club’s medical team and the coaching staff are all evaluating whether he can help the team as their top flight future remains up in the air.



Asked whether Bamford might be able to play in Leeds’ final two games, Marsch told a press conference: “I don’t want to say too much on Patrick right now.


“Everybody’s working together, it’s the medical team, Patrick, the coaching staff in evaluating where he can help us.”



Leeds will face Brighton on Sunday in their last home game and will close out the season with clash away at Brentford on 22nd May.
