Leeds United now sit second in the Championship but put their defeat behind them with a superb performance.

A number of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to laud Tyler Roberts' performance during their 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night which saw Marcelo Bielsa's men put in a much-improved display.

After going 2-0 down to Birmingham City last week, the Whites showed a lot of promise as they attempted to turn the game around. They still fell to their first league defeat of the season, but there was reason to not lose much optimism as Leeds showed plenty of spirit to fight back.

 

They may however, have lost some of that optimism when, after controlling much of the game up until that point, Adam Reach scored an incredible goal just before half-time for the Owls.

Leeds would equalise at Hillsborough and certainly did the better job of pushing for a winner. But the home side held on to pick up a decent point.

It was perhaps a frustrating night, but Leeds will go into their clash with Hull feeling extremely positive. And one of the players whose latest performance was widely praised was Roberts. 

The forward endured a difficult night and was not given a lot of service, but his effort could not be questioned, and a lot of supporters were extremely impressed by his movement. While many are looking forward to Kemar Roofe's return, several are convinced that Roberts is going to prove to be a fantastic signing once he realises his potential.
