Lee Erwin has yet to play for Leeds United this season.
He said: “The way I like to play is with one central striker and for him at the moment it’s hard for him to get Mirco [Antenucci] and Chris Wood out the team. I think in general to play that position you need experience and a certain physicality.”
Erwin signed for the Whites from Motherwell, arriving at Elland Road with little experience of first-team for to his name, but many expected him to move into the senior set-up with Leeds.
However, he has yet to play for Uwe Rosler’s side, featuring as an Under-21 player, and occasionally being named in matchday squads for the senior set-up.
He looks to be a great back-up for Chris Wood, with them both sharing physical styles of football, but Rosler has admitted that Erwin is still lacking experience and a ‘certain physicality’ to fit into his side.
However, Mirco Antenucci has been ahead Erwin in the first-team, despite lacking any of the physicality to make him a strong target man, and it is a surprise to see the Italian ahead of the young Scotsman in the pecking order of Rosler’s side.
