Leeds legend says Mowatt is doing more for club's season than anyone else

Alex Mowatt

Leeds United legend Peter Lorimer says no player is doing more for the club's season than Alex Mowatt.

Leeds United legend Peter Lorimer has aired his belief in the Yorkshire Evening Post that no one is doing more for the club’s season than midfielder Alex Mowatt.

Mowatt has been in superb form for Neil Redfearn’s side, with four goals in his last six Championship games for the club.

He’s a model to the other youngsters when it comes to reward for hard work and hopefully his form will continue over the next couple of months.

“As we approach the run-in, no-one’s doing more for the club’s season than Alex Mowatt,” wrote Lorimer.

“When I look at Mowatt now I see a proven Championship player. He’s still young and he’s still got room for improvement but he’s not feeling his way through games like he was at times last season.”

Mowatt’s big challenge is going to come looking ahead to next season because he’s no longer a surprise entity for Leeds’ opponents.

He’s one of the Leeds players that the opposition are going to spend a lot of time studying, to see if they can invent new and effective ways to keep him out of a game.

It will be interesting to see how he reinvents himself and the changes Redfearn makes in him to try and keep him effective over the rest of the season and beyond.

At times this season he’s been used in different roles and positions and if Leeds can get him settled and he’s consistent next season, there’s no reason he can’t be part of a promotion push.

However, the side must keep him beyond the summer.
