Jim Beglin has torn into Patrick Bamford for his miss that almost cost Leeds United the three points against Liverpool on Saturday night.

With the score at 1-1, the Whites had a chance to make it two, but Bamford’s touch let him down and the Liverpool defenders then came on to stop him from having another chance at goal.

However, it did not matter too much at the end as Bamford assisted Crysencio Summerville for the winning goal to make it 2-1.

Speaking on Premier League Productions’ world feed (29/10, 21:24), Beglin, a BT Sport pundit said, “He knows that he’s got this one absolutely wrong. He’s let his side down there. Not a good touch at all. That touch, terrible. It could have been so much more for Leeds.”

Relief

Bamford still does not look match fit and there would be plenty piling on him had Leeds not ended up winning the game.

This was such a high pressure game for the club, the fans and most importantly Jesse Marsch, who could’ve been out had this been a drubbing.

However, now the narrative has changed as Leeds move up to 15th and he will certainly thank Bamford for his assist to Summerville.

The England attacker surely needs to improve his touch and composure in front of goal but he’ll think about it all when he’s back in training.

As of now, Leeds deserve to celebrate this money and the players deserve full credit for not downing tools despite things not being ideal under Marsch.

They showed that they were fighting for the American throughout and he certainly will be overjoyed to see the fight from every player on the pitch.
