Jack Clarke can surely apply pressure on Leeds teammate Jack Harrison for position

Leeds United have entered the international break third in the Championship table after the 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United and just a point outside the automatic promotion spots.

Manager Marcelo Biesla has plenty to reflect on, but ultimately he needs to try find a way to win as many of the remaining eight league games.

The Whites need to become more lethal in front of goal without star centre-forward Kemar Roofe and the role of Jack Harrison should come under the spotlight.

Harrison has been an important player at Elland Road this campaign following his arrival on loan from Manchester City, but just three goals in 31 games across all competitions tell its own story.

The 22-year-old winger provides superb energy up and down the flanks, but it’s coming to the stage of the season where the Yorkshire giants need more end product from him.

Leeds youngster Jack Clarke returned from illness against Sheffield United and fans will hope he’s ready to go when domestic football resumes in a couple of weeks against Millwall.

The 18-year-old winger is a much better goal threat with his direct dribbling and he has two goals in 17 games, but has completed 90 minutes in just two of them.

He deserves a shot in the starting XI for the promotion run-in, with Spanish playmaker Pablo Hernandez occupying the opposite flank.

Clarke is definitely hot on the heels of Harrison for a starting position and Bielsa should make the swap against Millwall.
