Leeds United youngster Mallik Wilks scored yet again on loan last night.

The 20-year-old attacker, who re-joined Doncaster Rovers on loan from Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds in January, scored the second goal in a 3-0 demolition of Southend United.

In doing so, Wilks, who has been played mainly on the wing this season, made it 11 goals in all competitions for Donny.

Here's how some Whites and Rovers fans reacted to his goal last night.


Wilks has been the next big thing at Leeds for a while now and if he doesn't impress Bielsa enough to stay with the senior side next season, you wonder if that's his chance gone.

It's worth remembering that it's very possible United will be a Premier League side come August, which means it's going to become far harder for Thorp Arch starlets like Wilks and others to break through.

That being said, Bielsa clearly isn't afraid to take risks and reward young players with game time, but the youngster must force his way into the Argentine's plans.

The chance won't be given to him - he must take it with both hands in pre-season, regardless of what league the Whites are getting ready for.
