Thomas Christiansen cannot ignore Stuart Dallas any longer

Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Cardiff City and Leeds United at Cardiff City Stadium on September 26, 2017 in Cardiff, Wales.

Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas played well for Northern Ireland during the international break and should get more starts in the Championship.

Stuart Dallas has been sparingly used by Leeds United head coach Thomas Christiansen this season despite being fit.

The former Brentford star has started just once in the Championship so far this campaign and has made nine league appearances as a substitute.

The 26-year-old winger, who can also operate as an attacking midfielder, has played well and has made impact on the games, scoring two goals in the process.

Dallas was on international duty with Northern Ireland over the past few days and played well against Norway in their final 2018 World Cup qualifier ahead of the playoffs.

The former Crusaders star, who joined Leeds from Brentford in the summer of 2015, knows the Championship inside out, and head coach Christiansen needs to make better use of him.

With Leeds having lost their last two Championship matches, it is imperative that they return to winning ways against Reading at Elland Road in the league on Saturday afternoon.

Christiansen has to find a way to include Dallas in the starting lineup. The winger deserves better, and he could guide Leeds to a win against Reading.
