WITH Halloween fast approaching, luckless Luke Ayling must be lamenting spooky coincidences.

Leeds United’s first-choice right-back looks like facing another long spell on the sidelines after limping out of Saturday’s 1-1 Championship home draw with Nottingham Forest with a knee injury.

He was forced off in the 26th minute with what coach Marco Bielsa described as “an important injury.” Ayling will have a scan on Monday to assess the damage.

Ayling missed four months action last season after going off with an ankle injury on New Year’s Day in the same minute, against the same opposition in the same Elland Road stadium.
