After a bright start to the season in which they netted seven times in two matches, Leeds United have hit a wall from an attacking sense, drawing the last two games 0-0.
Both of these have come at home ground Elland Road, against Preston and Fulham.
The defensive pragmatism has to be admired considering the changes Leeds have had to make to their back four due to injury, but further forward Leeds are yet to find the right combination.
Absent entirely from their league matches this season has been the first signing made by new boss Thomas Christiansen, midfielder Mateusz Klich.
Klich was a £1.5 million signing from FC Twente, but so far has had to put up with being an unused substitute twice, and did not even make the bench for the Preston game.
This was not what the 27-year-old signed up for.
He has made just one appearance, starting the 4-1 EFL Cup win over Port Vale, in which he played 58 minutes before being substituted.
Klich was unlucky in pre-season, suffering a minor injury ahead of their tour to Austria, which allowed Eunan O'Kane and Kalvin Phillips an opportunity to impress the new manager.
Klich did though recover in time to play Oxford in late July, but has been on the outside of Christiansen's plans rather than within them.
The midfielder is a Polish international who was nicknamed 'the penetrator' in Holland due to his ability to unlock a defence with a pass.
This has been just what Leeds have lacked over the past two games, and the time may have come to get Klich more involved.
Klich's time will come, and while the trip to Sunderland at the weekend could be a tough game to throw him into, Leeds could be missing an opportunity by not handing the summer signing a more prominent role.
