Leeds fans react on Twitter to Will Buckley's performance against Birmingham

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United lost 2-0 to Birmingham City on Saturday but what did Whites fans make of their new winger's performance?

Leeds United gave a debut to new signing Will Buckley on Saturday but it is fair to say the Sunderland loanee did not have the best of matches.

The 25-year-old has been training with Leeds for a couple of weeks now and he officially completed his temporary switch to Elland Road on Friday, allowing him to make his debut the following day.

Buckley started the match as manager Uwe Rosler searched for what would have been only the club’s third win of the season, but when the full-time whistle blew Birmingham City led 2-0 and the winger had long since been substituted.

Given his complete lack of senior football this season prior to Saturday’s outing, it is no surprise Buckley looked off the pace and was replaced in the 57th minute by another recent addition, Jordan Botaka.

Eventually Buckley will no doubt have a vital role to play for Leeds, but he needs time to settle and build up his match fitness.
