Tyler Roberts has been waiting for his chance for Leeds United this season and is eager to prove himself in the Premier League.
He has played in the last seven consecutive games for the Whites and the Wales international is grateful for his recent game time.
Roberts also gave an insight into his mindset and shared how he is always trying to improve, game by game.
As quoted by the Press Association, he said, “I’ve always got things to prove.
“I’m my harshest critic after every game, I’m never happy. I always feel like I’ve got more to give and consistency right now is the main thing.
“It’s great to be getting the game time. I definitely needed the run of games and I just feel that I am getting stronger and fitter each game.
“Patience has been the key this season. The season before was a bit stop-start with some niggly injuries, but now I’ve been injury-free and have been waiting for my chance.”
Time to step-up
It is encouraging to see Roberts’ mindset as it should lead to the forward becoming better and better for us in the future.
However, it is one thing to show the right attitude and another to perform on the pitch.
Recent performances have shown Roberts is getting into his groove, with a recent display against Chelsea a great indication of what he can provide the team.
However, if the 22-year-old is to become the number nine he views himself as [talkSPORT] then he must start adding goals to his game, and soon.
Bamford has proven he has the instinct to be successful in the top-flight and he provides the ideal example for Roberts to look up to.
Like his teammate, Roberts has to add a ruthless nature to his game, particularly in front of goal.
Until that happens the jury will still be out on the attacker, but if he keeps trying to improve we could soon start to see the best he has to offer.
