This is a huge moment.

Bamford has been missed massively by the Whites, and it is amazing to see him back among the squad on a matchday.

The England international has been given the chance after clearly impressing Jesse Marsch and proving his fitness throughout the week.

It is likely that he will start on the bench, though, and come on if needed towards the end of the clash.

Now, we just await news regarding Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper making their imminent returns and this survival fight can really begin.

Hopefully, Bamford can inspire the lads around him to a huge three points today, let’s do it for Marcelo Bielsa.
