“I thought he did a good job.” – Kilgallon praises Bamford’s performance against Southampton

BBC Pundit Matt Kilgallon says he was impressed with Patrick Bamford’s performance against Southampton.

Junior Firpo scored the only goal of the game at Elland Road, but it was Bamford that caught the eye of Kilgallon on Saturday:

“Do you know what? I actually thought he did well. I thought he occupied the two centre-halves. He didn’t let them have anything easy. He did make some really good runs, especially first-half,” he told BBC Radio Leeds.

“And do you know what? I think he did hold it up alright. I think he did a few good touches off, first-time touches, passes to get people in.

“What I do like about him, he doesn’t let a centre-half have a free header. He gets his body in somehow. He’s not the biggest height-wise, but he won’t let a defender have a clean header. He’s doing his best up there. And I thought he did a good job.”

According to Sofascore, Bamford had two shots on target, made one key pass and completed 13/14 of his passes during the game. Leeds fans will hope he can continue this form in the absence of Rodrigo Moreno who is set for an early return from injury.
