Leeds United's Tyler Roberts celebrates scoring his side's second goal

Leeds United striker Tyler Roberts is trying to look on the positive side after a disappointing week on international duty with Wales.

Wales were lost their UEFA Nations League group to Denmark at the weekend and then suffered a defeat to an Albania team which had previously been heavily beaten by Scotland.


The shine is off Ryan Giggs' side and Roberts was selected for just 25 minutes out of a possible 180.

Roberts is only 19 and so cannot bear too much weight on his shoulders for Wales' disappointing results.

Instead the £4 million  striker is trying to learn from the character building experience.

Roberts is back to work for Leeds this weekend and could be on the bench behind Kemar Roofe as the team host Bristol City.

He has three goals in eight appearances for Leeds this season, but the last one came back on October 2. 

After a chastening week with Wales, getting back on track for Leeds and helping the team to victory will come as a big confidence boost.
