Leeds: Kevin Campbell makes Patrick Bamford claim

Leeds: Kevin Campbell makes Patrick Bamford claim -Leeds United News

Pundit Kevin Campbell believes Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford could make the bench against Brentford, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Out of Leeds’ hands

Jesse Marsch’s side are back in the bottom three heading into the final day after Burnley took a point from Aston Villa on Thursday, with survival out of their hands.

The Whites now need to better Burnley’s result on Sunday to have any chance of survival, so will be banking on a favour from Newcastle United.

Phil Hay stated earlier in the week that Bamford could return from a foot problem, however, he did add that there is every chance he won’t make it. The 28-year-old has made just seven starts all season and hasn’t featured since March.

The Latest: Campbell reacts

Campbell, who contributes for Sky Sports, was talking to FI regarding Hay’s update on Bamford.

He described Sunday’s game as ‘huge’ and believes the Whites may have to ‘risk’ Bamford by including him on the bench.

Let's get started... Ezgjan Alioski's country of birth is?

“You have to take every risk you can at times.

“If they can get him on the bench you throw him on. That is what you do.

“It is needs must right now for Leeds. It is one game and a huge one at that. This is Premier League status.

“One goal can change the whole club’s trajectory and Bamford is their goalscorer.

“If Leeds stay in the Premier League they have dodged a serious bullet. We will have to watch this space.”

The Verdict: Needed

Marsch has included 16-year-old Archie Gray on the bench in the last three games, so it would make sense to have Bamford on the bench on Sunday, even if he isn’t fully fit.

It would more than likely give everyone a psychological boost knowing that the club’s top scorer last season with 17 goals is back and potentially ready to come on, should Marsch’s side need a goal.

Defeat would mean a return to the Championship and a possible exit for Bamford, who has been linked with Newcastle, so Leeds need to do everything they can and hope results go their way to avoid the drop.
