Uwe Rosler should show more faith in Sam Byram and Mirco Antenucci

Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler needs to give more chances to Sam Byram and Mirco Antenucci.

Sam Byram

Sam Byram is one of the best and most promising young players in the Championship, but he is struggling at the moment.

The form of the Englishman has been disappointing so far this season, and he has deservedly lost his place in the Leeds United starting lineup.

However, the 22-year-old remains a superb talent who is versatile enough to play as a right-back or as a right-winger.

Byram has featured in nine Championship games so far this season, but there are doubts whether he will get back into the side as the season progresses.

Gaetano Berardi is the first-choice right-back for Leeds at the moment, while Byram will have to compete with Will Buckley and Jordan Botaka for a place on the wing.

Leeds head coach Uwe Rosler, though, must retain his faith in Byram, as he does have genuine potential.

Mirco Antenucci

Mirco Antenucci has featured in 10 Championship games so far this season, but most of them have come as a substitute.

Rosler prefers to play with summer signing Chris Wood up front, and while that make sense in his current system, the German must find a way to use Antenucci more regularly.

The Italian has scored three goals and created six chances in the league this season, and he needs to be given more playing time in order to show how important he can be to the team.
