Adryan would rather have not played for Leeds and the side won, but can they have both against Norwich?

Leeds star said he would have traded his debut for a win, but can they have both against Norwich?

Leeds United signing Adryan made his eagerly anticipated debut against Rotherham on Friday, but could not help Darko Milanic's side slip to defeat.

The attacking midfielder made an impressive impact, playing 29 minutes in the loss away to the Millers.

After the contest, Adryan took to Twitter to say he would have swapped playing a part for not doing so, if it meant Leeds took all three points.

Leeds take on Norwich City on Tuesday night at Carrow Road, and the Brazilian has a huge chance of making his first start.

Manager Darko Milanic told the club's official site: "Adryan was very dangerous. He made good movement inbetween the lines. He played very well for 30 minutes and did a good job."

With only three goals scored in four games under Slovenian head coach Milanic, his words are hugely encouraging as they signify he has successfully illustrated the creativity the team need.

Adryan had three shots on goal and created one goalscoring chance during his substitute appearance against Rotherham. Lewis Cook, who he replaced, didn't manage any attempts on goal and created just one chance in double the game time.

Going to Norwich and winning will be far from easy, but giving Adryan a start could be Milanic's best chance. The players need to believe it is possible, and such is the buzz around the youngster right now, his selection has the opportunity to give his teammates a lift, while causing uncertainty among Norwich's defenders.

If Leeds can spring an upset by defeating a Norwich side who have lost two of their last three games, Adryan will have no regrets to look back on.
