With some frustration creeping into the Leeds United fanbase as we struggled for goals since injuries hit our main two strikers in the shape of Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford, the victory over Ipswich Town last night was the perfect tonic for many.

Plenty had certainly read into manager Marcelo Bielsa’s more recent demeanour as a sign of the frustration he felt himself at how results had turned, but the Argentine seemed back on top form when he met with press following the return of all three points.

The win lifted us back to the top of the Championship table, joint level on points now with Middlesbrough and Sheffield United which shows we had more than kept ourselves in the mix despite our issues in front of goal, and his simple, matter of fact message, went over extremely well with fans on social media.

His demands and expectations are perfectly demonstrated by those few words, especially as many managers will downplay the importance of the league table at this stage of the year but it doesn’t mean we won’t have further hiccups between now and the end of the season, nothing can be assumed yet other than it’s clear what Bielsa’s intentions ultimately are.
