Leeds United face Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night, and Igor Vetokele will be looking to score yet again.
Leeds United start the (permanent) Neil Redfearn era with a defeat, as Cardiff City dismantled the Whites in a 3-1 thumping in South Wales.
However, Leeds now return to Elland Road on Tuesday night, with Charlton Athletic – one of the club’s Redfearn represented as a player – travelling up to West Yorkshire.
The Addicks have played well under new manager Bob Peeters this season, losing just twice, but also drawing eight games after an influx of foreign talent.
Another draw on Saturday against Sheffield Wednesday was frustrating, but it was one of those foreign imports who stole the headlines.
Striker Igor Vetokele joined the club this summer from FC Copenhagen for around £2m, the Angolan international has been the star of the show for Charlton this season.
Vetokele has been ruled out injured for the last few games, but made his triumphant return against Wednesday, scoring within five minutes of his introduction from the bench to earn a share of the spoils.
That took his tally to seven goals in just 13 appearances this season, and Leeds must be wary of the 22-year-old’s ability – particularly with regular centre back Jason Pearce out of the game through suspension.
The stats show that Vetokele has had 23 shots season with 14 on target, and having hit the back of the net with seven of those, it’s clear that he’s a deadly finisher.
With blistering pace and surprising ability in the air, Vetokele can score in a number of different ways, and if Redfearn doesn’t have a plan to stop him, then the Leeds defence could get themselves tangled up – just as they did against Adam Le Fondre and Federico Macheda at the weekend.
