Jack Harrison needs to end Leeds goal drought against Millwall

Jack Harrison has played in all 12 of Leeds United’s games across all competitions so far this season and is a big favourite of manager Marcelo Bielsa.

The 22-year-old is an ever-present in the league XI and someone that offers a great work-rate out wide.

He’s a left-winger that works tirelessly back when defending, while going forward he has quick feet and tremendous trickery.

But his issue is the lack of end product on his game and it does frustrate some fans that he continues to be favoured by Bielsa.

The wide man scored on the opening day league win against Bristol City, but is now on an 11-game drought across all competitions without scoring.

 

His only assist throughout the season came in midweek during the important 1-0 win over Charlton Athletic, but he surely has to become more efficient in goal to warrant a place in a team that create so many goalscoring chances.

Leeds travel to Millwall on Saturday to face them in the final Championship game before the international break and it looks like sticking with Harrison could be a smart move.

Harrison should have fond memories of playing against Millwall, as he scored one of his four goals against them last season.

He popped up with a late goal in September 2018 to secure a 1-1 draw at The Den and these are the types of memories that will give individuals confidence.

There is no doubting that he’s got the talent to be a real hit at Elland Road, but needs to prove his value in front of goal and should be confident when he returns to Millwall.
