Pontus Jansson returns to Leeds United tonight and there is a lot of pressure on striker Patrick Bamford.

Fortunately Bamford is used to dealing with pressure, and the last time he went up against Jansson, it worked out very, very well.

This was on March 2 2018 when Middlesbrough took on Paul Heckingbottom's Leeds.

Boro won the match 3-0 with Bamford scoring a hat-trick.

The picture above shows Bamford scoring his second goal of the game, getting the better of Jansson to do so.

 

Jansson will fancy his chances a bit better now, having got used to Bamford during their year together at Leeds.

But Bamford enters the game in form, scoring twice against Wigan at the weekend.

 

With a roaring crowd behind him, Bamford might fancy his chances, and knows he has the beating of his former teammate.
