‘Need you at Leeds right now’ – Mallik Wilks has fans purring while Leeds strikers flounder

Mallik Wilks has hit a good run of form.

While Leeds United paid for their wastefulness in front of goal, loanee Mallik Wilks reminded the club of his talents.

Wilks is currently on loan at Doncaster Rovers and is firing them to promotion contention. He scored yet again on Saturday to boost their play-off hopes.

The 20-year-old has been thriving in a right-wing role, cutting inside with pace and strength and using his dangerous left foot to good effect.

That takes his tally to 16 goals in 48 games this season. Along with eight assists, it has been a productive campaign on loan in League One for Wilks.

The Leeds academy starlet has now scored for the last three games running to help Doncaster regain their form and firm up their place in the play-offs.

Meanwhile, Leeds fans were frustrated as Patrick Bamford spurned some glorious chances in the 1-0 loss against Birmingham City.

This saw Leeds drop out of the top two. And here are some tweets from Leeds fans, praising Wilks for his goal and asking him to return.
