Leeds United pounced to land Bryce Hosannah from Crystal Palace in 2017, with some harbouring high hopes for the defender.

Hosannah hasn’t yet made his first-team debut for Leeds though, and at the age of 21, he needed first-team playing time this season.

In late September, Leeds struck a deal to send Hosannah on loan to nearby Bradford City, enabling him to play League Two football under Stuart McCall.

On Saturday, Hosannah started at right back for Bradford as they travelled to take on Mansfield Town – and it proved to be a great day for the Bantams.

Bradford claimed a 3-1 win to move up to 13th in the League Two table, with Hosannah playing the full 90 minutes in the win.

Hosannah took to Twitter on Saturday night to celebrate his first league start for Bradford and a first win, noting that it was a ‘good day’.

The London-born talent was praised by Bradford fans, who called him ‘outstanding’, ‘bright and sharp’, ‘unbelievable’ and a ‘real player’ as Hosannah was praised for his display.
