Leeds United: Phil Hay drops encouraging message on Bamford’s return

Phil Hay has dropped a positive message on Patrick Bamford’s return to the Leeds United first team.

Last season was a season of redemption for Patrick Bamford as he had never made an impact in the Premier League despite having already turned out for four different sides in the top flight, and after many pundits claimed he wasn’t good enough to lead the line, he managed to score 17 times and even earned an England call up last year.

Will Bamford play again this season?





Given how crucial he was to Leeds last season with his goals and assists it’s no surprise to see the Whites struggling so much this time around without their star striker as he’s very rarely been seen on the pitch with just nine league appearances under his belt.

Despite a frustrating season for Bamford, there could be some light at the end of the tunnel as Hay spoke on The Phil Hay Show about how the striker could still play a part in the run season.

(15:55) “Something tells me that if Bamford is going to be fit for the last couple of games, he’s going to be needed and there’s a chance he will be fit for those.

He was due to be back out on the grass this week and we’ll find out when we speak to Marsch before the Arsenal game, what position he’s in.”

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?

Jesse Marsch has now held his pre-match press conference and confirmed that Bamford has been out on the pitch this week, although stopped before confirming or denying if he would be fit enough to feature against Arsenal this weekend.

While Leeds’ next two games could perhaps be seen as free hits given who they are against, with just four games left in the season, Leeds have to try and win every single one no matter who it’s against and after contributing so little to Leeds’ season thus far, Bamford would likely thrive off the challenge of keeping Leeds up by scoring the important goals.
