Leeds fans react on Twitter to Sam Byram performance against York City

Leeds United defender Sam Byram put in an impressive shift in a friendly draw for the club.

Leeds United’s preparations for the new season are in full swing with the start of the Championship season now just over three weeks away.

Friendly games have to be taken with a pinch of salt because they’re less about the result and more about the work the players are doing in terms of their fitness

Leeds ground out a 1-1 draw in their latest friendly game against York City, with Sam Byram grabbing he only goal of the game for the away side, showing that he’s not lost any of his tough in the opponent’s half, looking back to his attacking role last season.

Rosler will be eager to create positive momentum heading into the new season, because his job will be easier of Leeds United’s key players are feeling positive and full of energy, as the club look to improve on a position of 15th under old manager Neil Redfearn.

Byram will definitely be part of the jigsaw if Leeds are going to develop and improve and it will be interesting to see how Rosler uses him in terms of his position and role in the side; does he move him back to full-back or leave him in a wide midfield role where he has already been very effective?

Leeds now step up the quality in terms of their pre-season opponents with a trip to Eintracht Frankfurt this Tuesday, before a game against experienced German side Hoffenheim the weekend after next.
