20-year-old Leeds United Academy graduate Mallik Wilks has tasted Play-Off heartbreak himself in the 2018/19 campaign as Doncaster Rovers went down on Friday evening to aggregate.

Having headed to the Keepmoat Stadium at the beginning of the year, the youngster has had a great spell out on loan, making 48 starting appearances, seven additional showings from the bench and in those games he’s found the back of the net 16 times, so it has been a true breakthrough year for him. He also helped himself to eight assists in the league campaign.

Despite winning 3-2 on the night, the aggregate score was 4-4 and Charlton Athletic stole it on penalties.

Taking to social media to send his disappointed goodbyes to their fans, Leeds United fans were quick to comment on the campaign he’d had, and they were looking forward to welcoming him back to Elland Road where he can maybe become the next youngster to make an impact as we look to go one further next season.
