Journalist Dean Jones believes Patrick Bamford’s availability will end up costing Leeds United their top flight status.
Bamford has been in and out of the first team due to injury and fitness issues over the past year. He only managed nine appearances in the Premier League last season due to injury. This season, he has only started 10 games, scoring two goals.
Dean Jones says Leeds reliance on the striker is not a good sign:
“If you can’t get him on the pitch often enough, then you just can’t keep waiting and waiting.
“We know how good he is, but the constant wait for him to be fit and firing is costing them now. It’s literally costing them league places. They need to go out and sign the proven goalscorer they needed to get signed in January.”
The 29-year old marked his return from his recent injury with a goal against Brighton on Saturday.
