Up front, leading goal scorer João Pedro will face a late fitness test ahead of the trip to West Yorkshire as Ivić is cautious of not risking the talent ahead of a busy schedule.
“We will see tomorrow how João Pedro will be and take the decision whether he’s ready or not for the next game,” he said. “The chance is 50/50 and in this moment we want to think about the health of the player. Because, if he’s not 100 per cent, then to take some kind of risk and then lose the player for a long period, I don’t want to do that.”
Elsewhere, Isaac Success and Craig Cathcart have both continued in their rehabilitation this week, while the players isolating due to COVID-19 remain unavailable.
