The Leeds United player did not have the best of games this weekend.
Young Leeds United defender Ross Killock knew this season was make-or-break with just a year left on his current contract, so he would have known that a loan move to Stockport County was a good chance to show manager Steve Evans that he does have a future at Elland Road.
It may not have been the temporary switch many expected, but the short-term move enabled the 21-year-old to get some much-needed first-team football under his belt as well as building up his fitness having recently returned from injury.
Killock is a versatile player who is predominantly a centre-back but can also operate at right-back or in midfield, so there is a feeling among some Leeds supporters that he could one day make it provided he lives up to his potential.
Loan moves such as this will be vital in his development but Killock’s debut was one to forget as Stockport lost 3-1 to Chorley in their latest National League North match.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Stockport fans thought of the Leeds loanee’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
As debuts go, that kid Killock from Leeds had a shocker. Hopefully he bucks his ideas up by next week.— Clare Bridge (@clarebridge87) November 8, 2015
@SamByrneSport I hope one of them is to send Tonge and Killock packing. Dire today both of them.— Matthew Stambach (@StatthewMambach) November 7, 2015
@GJToms his errors knocked all of them for 6, I have him at fault for 2. Killock was very wobbly too to be fair— MJC (@m_cuss) November 7, 2015
Some good link-up play out on the right by Killock, Baggie and Tonge. Lively. #stockportcounty— Sam Byrne (@SamByrneSport) November 7, 2015
