Leeds fans on Twitter ready for a Patrick Bamford masterclass against Sheffield United

Leeds fans on Twitter ready for a Patrick Bamford masterclass against Sheffield United

Last night was a performance to remember from the Whites. A Pablo Hernandez masterclass delivered Leeds United all three points at the Madejski Stadium and had Patrick Bamford been at his goal-scoring best it could have been a much heavier defeat for Reading. Now, though, the fans are expecting Bamford to step up on Saturday.

As Marcelo Bielsa’s side went into half-time with a 3-0 lead the game was all but wrapped up, however, that 3-0 margin could easily have become a 6-0 margin as Patrick Bamford missed a flurry of chances to get on the scoresheet midway through the second 45 minutes. The home supporters sarcastically chanted ‘give it to Bamford’ and the away supporters just hope he’s saving his goals for Saturday.

If the fans could pick and choose when their frontman is to score, they’d definitely save the goals for the big games, and this weekend is surely one of those. Sheffield United travel to Elland Road in a massive clash between two of the Championship’s three sides vying for automatic promotion. Another miss-fest from Bamford won’t be tolerated come 12:30 on Saturday as a win will put the Whites in the driver’s seat for a top-two finish, something the fans are desperate for Bamford to fire them to.

You can see what the Whites made of Bamford’s misses here:

The Whites were never going to be happy seeing their front-man miss so many chances, but with a huge game on Saturday they’re desperate for Bamford to be saving some strikes for the weekend.
