Some Leeds fans want Patrick Bamford dropped for Ryan Edmondson at Preston

Leeds United fans celebrate during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Millwall at Elland Road on March 30, 2019 in Leeds, England.

The young Leeds United striker scored again for the Under-23s on Monday.

Some Leeds United fans are urging Marcelo Bielsa to involve Ryan Edmondson in Tuesday's trip to Preston North End.

That is despite Bielsa telling the Yorkshire Evening Post on Monday that Edmondson, the free-scoring Leeds U23s striker, is unlikely to be used due to his inexperience compared to Patrick Bamford, Kemar Roofe and Tyler Roberts.

 

And after the 17-year-old struck again for Carlos Corberan's development squad later that evening - his 17th goal this season - calls to promote him are not going away.

Some even want Edmondson to start ahead of Bamford, the £7 million summer signing whose form has suffered an alarming dip of late.

Edmondson, who joined Leeds from York City in 2017, made his debut for the Whites on the final day of last season and has appeared once from the substitutes' bench this campaign.

The burly front man doesn't turn 18 until next month and has two years left on his contract at Elland Road.

Who should start up front for Leeds against Preston?
