Tyler Roberts carried on tonight where he left off for Leeds United in the game against Fulham, and fans hailed his first-half display against Luton.
The game didn’t get off to the best start for Leeds, with skipper Liam Cooper picking up what looked like a really painful back injury.
He tried a couple of times to jog off the injury but was obviously in a huge amount of pain and Gaetano Berardi came on to replace him.
Patrick Bamford was looking sharp early on and had the first big chance of the game but it was Roberts who caught the eye as the half went on.
He’s putting in a big shout to replace Bamford up front and if Pablo Hernandez was fully fit, it’s a change that we could see working from the start.
Bielsa took Bamford off at half-time against Fulham and, with Roberts moving up top, Leeds looking a much stronger side with Hernandez on and pulling the strings.
We can see that happening again this evening in a game that Leeds really need to win after promotion rivals Brentford and Fulham both won.
If they’re to do that they need to find some spark – it developed into a really flat performance from Leeds.
However, West Brom – Roberts’ former side – might be even more nervous tonight though, with Brentford now just two points behind them.
Meanwhile, here are the reactions from the Leeds fans to Roberts’ first half…
