Matt Kilgallon praised Wilfried Gnonto after Leeds United’s game with Brighton, saying the forward needs to be the first name on the team sheet.
Gnonto was a livewire in his cameo against Brighton, causing all sorts of havoc in wide areas. The 19-year old provided the assist for Jack Harrison’s late equalizer.
Kilgallon believes the Italian should start this weekend:
“He’s a threat, isn’t he. You get it out to him, he’s fresh. He gets the ball, he’s positive. He gets the crowd up, he gets it and people stand up. You hear the chairs bang as people get up. He’s got something and he comes on, and he puts a shift in straight away. And he does well, doesn’t he. For a sub, you ask him to do it and he does it. He put them on the back foot, didn’t he, and made Brighton get a little bit deeper,” he told BBC Radio Leeds.
“I like him, I think he’s a real threat.
“I’d like to see him start the next game. And I think he will. I think he has to.”
Gnonto has often looked like Leeds best attacker during the season. The Whites are away to Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.
