Ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Don Goodman on Leeds United’s Alex Mowatt

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sunderland striker Don Goodman is impressed with Leeds United trio Alex Mowatt, Sam Byram and Lewis Cook.

Don Goodman has been singing the praises of Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt on the Sky Sports’ FL 72 Review show.

The youngster has been in brilliant form so far this season and has been making the headlines in recent weeks.

The 20-year-old is rated as one of the best young players in the Championship and has been key in Leeds’s upturn in form under manager Neil Redfearn.

Mowatt has scored seven goals and created 35 chances in 27 Championship appearances so far this season, while having a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 46%.

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Goodman has been impressed with Mowatt’s performances this campaign, while he also seems to rate Leeds duo Sam Byram and Lewis Cook highly.

“He is a talented boy, and he is one in a group of really talented players, like Sam Byram and Lewis Cook,” the former Sunderland man told Sky Sports’ FL 72 Review show. “He has been in the goals recently and that’s why he has talked about an awful lot.”

Leeds have a truly fantastic group of young players, and manager Redfearn has done a great job of integrating them into the first team and getting them to play the way he wants to play.

Sam Byram is a right-back by trade, but in recent weeks he has been deployed at right-wing and he has done well in his new role.

Lewis Cook turned 18 only last month, but the midfielder has already made 33 appearances in the Championship this campaign.

The teenager has yet to score in the league this season, but he has created 34 chances, has a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and has won 38% of the duels.

Leeds are currently 13th in the Championship table with 47 points from 36 matches.
