Ben White has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he thought that Leeds United striker Eddie Nketiah played well against Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds drew 0-0 with Wednesday at the weekend, with the Whites trying out both their striking options during the contest.

Patrick Bamford was controversial selected to start the match at Hillsborough, despite many Leeds fans wanting Nketiah to get the nod.

The Arsenal loanee did come on for the second-half, as Bamford picked up a knock.


And White felt that Nketiah provided Leeds with a spark against Sheffield Wednesday, even if he didn’t manage to score.

“I don’t think it’s affecting either of them,” White said. “They both go out there and do their best so that’s all they can do.

“Eddie he did well when he came on (against Wednesday), he brought us a bit of a spark to the team.”

Nketiah actually has scored more goals for Leeds this season than Bamford, even though he hasn’t been given a start in the Championship yet.

Marcelo Bielsa has shown great faith in Bamford, but his goalscoring record has to be a concern.

Bamford actually was very unlucky not to end his drought against Wednesday, as he saw a header brilliantly saved.

Leeds’ draw with their Yorkshire rivals has left them in third place in the Championship table.
