Sol Bamba shares what he's been discussing with Leeds United boss Steve Evans

Leeds United have won their last three matches in succession.

Sol Bamba has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he has recently been discussing the strength of Leeds United’s squad with Steve Evans.

Leeds have competition for places in most areas of their team, with Chris Wood now returning to fitness and a number of players hitting form.

The Whites’ have won their last three successive matches, and Bamba believes that the depth of the squad at Elland Road is very impressive.

“I think at the minute we’ve got a strong bench and I was talking about this with the gaffer,” Bamba said.

“He said a couple of weeks ago that when he looked at his bench, he couldn’t do anything. But at the minute he’s got a strong bench. That’s the key.

“Having Chris (Wood) back is massive.

“We all know the kind of player he is and to have him in the side is clearly important.”

Evans made the same point about Leeds’ bench being very strong, after he guided the Yorkshire club to a 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers last weekend.

Leeds’ injury problems are starting to lessen, and the increasing quality of their team has been on display over recent weeks.

Leeds are currently on their best run of form over the entirety of the campaign to date, and they have moved up to 13th place in the Championship table.

Evans says that he is now targeting a top 10 finish, as he looks to lay the foundations for a push for promotion next term.

Leeds’ next match comes against Huddersfield Town, where they will be aiming to win four games in a row for the first time since 2009.
