Leeds fans react on Twitter to Tyler Roberts display vs Brentford

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the performance of Tyler Roberts after the Whites’ Premier League clash with Brentford at Elland Road on Sunday.

Despite the news that Patrick Bamford was back available, Roberts kept his place in the side following a superb display against Crystal Palace in midweek.

The Wales international brought plenty of energy to the side in the 1-0 win. And his performance was lauded by Marcelo Bielsa following the win.

It looked set to be a hugely disappointing result for Leeds this time around. Brentford went into stoppage-time 2-1 up after turning the game around in the second-half.

However, it was Bamford who came to Leeds’ rescue. The striker prodded home the equaliser in the final moments to leave the Whites six points clear of the bottom three.

Obviously, Bamford will take many of the headlines after making a vital impact. But plenty of fans were full of praise for what Roberts offered, particularly during the first-half.

The Wales international broke the deadlock after 27 minutes with his first league goal of the campaign. For many, it was seen as a just reward after some really bright form of late.

Roberts has come in for a lot of criticism during his time at Elland Road. However, he appears to have stepped up in recent weeks. And the fans felt that he was a shining light on what was so nearly an agonising result for Bielsa’s men.
