Eddie Gray has told LUTV that he noticed Mateusz Klich 'getting forward a lot' in Leeds United's League Cup win in midweek and hopes he continues to be adventurous on the field.

Marcelo Bielsa's side breezed into the second round of the Carabao Cup with a 3-0 win at Salford City.

The Poland international put the result beyond doubt before the hour mark with a wonderful finish which found the top corner, following a surging run.

The midfielder, a £1.5 million signing two years ago [Yorkshire Evening Post], spent the game in a slightly more advanced role than he usually occupied last season, and Gray says that it 'suits' him really well.


He told LUTV: "Klich I thought played well the other night. Terrific goal. He was getting forward a lot more the other night, getting up to support the front man. It suits him to do that."

Klich still got forward last season, evident by the fact he scored 10 Championship goals, but there were other games where he played deeper.

And Gray is spot-on, the slightly more attacking position definitely suits the former Twente man a lot better.

He clearly knows the way to goal and it wouldn't be a huge surprise if he betters his total for last season and hits double figures again.
