During the enforced break, there has been a growing argument between Leeds United duo Luke Ayling and Tyler Roberts over who will earn the Goal of the Season award at Elland Road.
Roberts and Ayling have been joking between themselves during the lockdown, and that continued on Thursday when Leeds asked the fans which strike they preferred.
It was Ayling’s thunderous volley against Huddersfield that convincingly took that poll, much to the disappointment of the Welshman.
Dallas jumped to the forefront on Thursday afternoon, claiming that his goal against Stoke should rise above both of those strikes.
“To stop any friction between you two, let’s just vote for mine at Stoke,” he joked on his personal Twitter account.

There is no doubting that Dallas’ goal at the Bet 365 Stadium was phenomenal, a flowing team move that was matched by an exquisite ball through from Pablo Hernandez.
Having said that, both Roberts and Ayling’s were on another level for many different reasons.
Although we enjoyed every single goal, how could we not?! Ayling’s certainly has to top the tree.
We have come to expect the flowing team moves every single week under Marcelo Bielsa. Something we don’t expect is Ayling to come steaming on to a switched ball, and smashing it into the top corner on the volley.
We don’t care how the goals come, but we certainly weren’t complaining when such a spectacular strike came only minutes into a Yorkshire derby.
