Leeds United rescued a point in their 1-1 draw away to promotion rivals West Bromwich Albion with one player proving to go unnoticed with his performance.
The Whites were in trouble early on as they conceded the opening goal after just two minutes. Semi Ajayi gave the Baggies an early lead after he poked home following a goalmouth scramble (via BBC).
Marcelo Bielsa’s side clicked into gear following a double second-half substitution which saw the introduction of Barry Douglas and Patrick Bamford. The latter played a pivotal role in the equaliser as his header was turned in by Ajayi just seven minutes after he had come on.
Will Leeds miss Nketiah?
Despite only playing 45 minutes in the clash, Bamford proved to be the main man for the Yorkshire outfit.
His influence in attack cannot be understated as he had the most shots on goal (3) and was the second-most fouled player (2) in his short time on the pitch (via WhoScored).
He made the most clearances (5) and the second-most interceptions (2) as he proved to be a wall in defence.
However, it was Jack Harrison who slipped under the radar despite proving to be influential for the Elland Road outfit.
He played the most key passes (3) as his cross proved to be key in unlocking a stubborn West Brom defence for his side’s goal.
Leeds Live agreed with this assessment of his performance as they gave him a seven out of 10, commenting on his crossing.
They said: “Crosses in the second period were consistently dangerous and ideal for a lively Patrick Bamford on the lookout.”
“Guilty of over-playing and over-running the ball sometimes in the first half, but clear improvement and threat in the second period.”(Source: Leeds Live)
