Some Doncaster Rovers fans are praising Leeds-owned attacker Mallik Wilks.

The Thorp Arch gem played 80 minutes on Friday night as Donny drew 0-0 at home to Barnsley at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The 20-year-old, who has had two loan spells away from Leeds at the same club this season, has been one of Rovers' best players with 13 goals from out wide, but he was unable to inspire his side again last night.

Manager of the League One side Grant McCann brought Wilks off with 10 minutes to play.

 

Here's how fans reacted to the youngster's display:

If Leeds win Premier League promotion then it seems possible that Wilks could be offloaded.

He is a big talent but is he really going to go from a very good League One player to a Premier League ace over the course of the summer? It's doubtful.

At his age, Wilks still needs a lot of football for the sake of his ongoing development and the disappointing thing is that Marcelo Bielsa just might not be able to offer that next term.

The Whites will take a massive step toward the top flight today if they beat Sheffield United at Elland Road to establish a five-point cushion in the automatic promotion spots.
