Firpo spent some time on the ground during added time before being carried off by medics.

The summer signing’s leg was put in a brace and he was given oxygen.

On the extent of Firpo’s injury, Leeds manager Jesse Marsch expects the defender to be ‘out for a while.’

Marsch said: “We don’t know yet but it’s probably something on the inside of his knee like an MCL [medial collateral ligament] so we’ll evaluate that and see where’s he at.

“I would guess it keeps him out for a while.”

Firpo’s injury comes at the wrong time for Leeds with the club sat just two points above the drop zone.

Burnley, in particular, have TWO games in hand on Leeds.

The Whites are still without main man Kalvin Phillips and there’s just ten games left to secure their place in the Premier League.

Marsch admits he has a ‘big job’ on his hands.

He said: “It is a big job right now. A big job to help the group be confident, to help them to be clear and to transition, not just tactically but also with the overall mentality of what the team has been.

“I knew it would not be an automatic flip of the switch, but you can see we have more work to do and not much time to get it done.”
