Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford came on against Middlesbrough on Saturday with an interesting hair do and Leeds fans aren’t sure what to make of it.
The Whites recorded their seventh straight league home win as they contine their unbeaten home record in the Championship.
Middlesbrough took the lead early in the game thanks to Emmanuel Lath; but responded quickly as they scored twice in the space of 2 minutes. Dan James leveled the scores in the fifth minute before Crysencio Summerville scored his eight league goal of the season.
Joel Piroe converted a penalty just before half time to extend the lead to 3-1, but it was Emmanuel Lath again with the goal to pull the game to 3-2. Surprisingly both sides failed to find the back of the net in the second half, after managing to score five goals in the first.
The second half was uneventful in front of goal, however the game turned into a frenzy with yellow cards flying all over. Anfernee Dijksteel was sent off in the 63rd minute after a nasty challenge.
Patrick Bamford came on in the 82nd minute to replace Georginio Rutter. The forward was sporting a new look, with a platinum blonde look. Leeds fans on Twitter had their say on the striker’s new hairstyle:
Bamford’s hair 😭😭😭 hopefully gives him his 20/21 powers
