Football Insider reports that Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford will have a ‘special role’ from the bench, via Ben Dinnery.

Both Bamford and Leeds United have a season to forget. Bamford was out since March with a foot injury and might return for the season’s remainder games for the club. On the other hand, Jesse Marsch’s side have to give their absolute best against Brighton and Brentford to avoid relegation. They are currently occupying the 18th place with 34 points in 36 games.

The Leeds boss revealed that he expects Bamford to train with the squad this week. If fit, he might be in contention to make the match day squad at Elland road.

Bamford return will be a ‘huge’ boost

Ben Dinnery who works for Sky Sports talked to Football Insider for a possible return of Patrick Bamford. He marked the forward a key member of the Leeds United side and mentioned his return could be huge. Additionally, he also said he could play a part from the bench. Dinnery said:

“With a fully fit Patrick Bamford, Leeds would be nowhere near where they are currently. They don’t really have a natural goalscorer at the moment. They have tried a few up there but no one has got anywhere near his goal return. It depends on results elsewhere. I certainly think there is a special role from the bench to be had for Bamford. He isn’t going to be where they want him in terms of fitness and sharpness but he knows how to score. He will make opportunities for himself and he is huge for that Leeds team.”

Due to continuous injuries and suspensions, Leeds United are in such a mess. His involvement will provide the neccessary boost to uplift the side. His possible return can be key to save Leeds from relegation threat. For the past two seasons, he bagged 19 Premier League goals and assisted for further 10 goals.
