A pundit with positive words about Leeds United's Patrick Bamford.

Leeds United star Patrick Bamford came under fire during the club's play-off semi-final against Derby.

The striker was making his return after a two game suspension for play acting.

 

Bamford did not seem to have learned his lesson, going down easily in the first half, drawing more ire from opposing fans.

But it wasn't all criticism coming Bamford's way.

Former pro Fabrice Muamba took to Twitter to praise his performance.

He was impressed with the way the Leeds striker held up the ball for his teammates.

Leeds signed Bamford for £7 million from Middlesbrough last summer.

He had a tough start to the season when he got injured in September, missing three months of action.

Kemar Roofe's good form has shown up Bamford on his off days. Last night Roofe was injured, giving Bamford the chance to start.

Despite the praise, he could not deliver in front of goal, with Leeds going out 4-3 on aggregate.
