Leeds United were held to a 1-1 draw against Derby County on Saturday afternoon in the Championship – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter ripped Patrick Bamford to shreds for his performance.
The Whites missed a number of brilliant goalscoring opportunities to end up sharing the points with Derby at Elland Road.
Max Lowe’s own goal in the first-half gave Marcelo Bielsa’s team a much deserved advantage, but they were unable to capitalise and Mateusz Klich missed a penalty to make the game 2-0.
After weathering the storm, visitors Derby made the most of their lifeline and Chris Martin scored a 91st minute equaliser.
Bamford endured a torrid time in attack where he couldn’t make the most of his opportunities.
The 26-year-old striker saw an effort early in the second-half deflect off the post, while in the first period he missed a glorious one-on-one chance where he tried to lob the goalkeeper.
Bielsa continues to put faith in him as the first-choice striker, but his conversation rate isn’t great and surely understudy Eddie Nkeitah is knocking down the door to replace him in the league XI.
A selection of Leeds supporters on social media were fed up with Bamford after his latest troubles in front of goal.
Here are some Leeds fans ripping into Bamford:
Stop playing bamford! Yeah he works hard but how many chances do we have to give him!!!!!!!!!!

Yes Bamford played well today but he is not clinical enough. Defended him against the naysayers but Eddie has to start now. #lufc

Bamford needs to be dropped, I’m sorry.

Bamford with the worst conversion rate in the championship but we play him every game and expect to go up. What a joke. #lufc

Bamford will and is costing us points. I cannot believe we came out of that with anything less than 3 points. How many times will this happen? #lufc

Got to drop Bamford now, don’t dislike the guy but his form is not good enough! Should of been 3-0 and cruising #lufc

Not gonna watch anymore #lufc games this season if bamford is starting, it’s painful to watch

Bamford isn’t a born finisher. Never has been and never will be. He’s always enjoyed playing as a two, we either need eddie and bamford together or just eddie. 7 points dropped already this season because of poor finishing. #sorrynotsorry #lufc
