Leeds United will have to wait longer for striker Patrick Bamford after he suffered another injury setback.
The Englishman has been on the sidelines for the better part of the season and came back in their clash against Wolves on March 18th where he came off after 23 minutes.
He collided with Wolves shot-stopper Jose Sa, and according to reports from the club, he ruptured his plantar fascia in the incident.
"As all of the stats show, Patrick has put his body on the line for Leeds United for a number of seasons, he has played with a plantar fascia injury for the last 12 months and despite treatment and a prolonged period of rehabilitation, the injury has progressed from a partial tear to a full rupture.

"As all sports medics know, injuries to the plantar fascia are notoriously difficult to manage, but all concerned are confident that he will make a full recovery from this injury in good time," Rob Price, the club's head of medicine and performance said.
The news will be a blow for Leeds who are still in the relegation battle despite parting ways with Marcelo Bielsa for Jesse Marsch.
