Following Swansea City disappointment as Leeds United went into the September international break, there was every reason for cheer last Sunday as we took a deserved 2-0 victory over Barnsley at Oakwell.

We had to wait a while for the goals to come despite creating plenty of chances, but inside of the final ten minutes of the tie, on loan Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah found the breakthrough and then he coaxed former Leeds United centre-half, Aapo Halme, into conceding the late penalty that Mats Klich made no mistake with.

Unfortunately, but such is football, plenty of fans were seemingly happy to focus on 26-year-old striker Patrick Bamford not finding the net for the second straight game – despite him getting a goal and an assist in the tie against Stoke City.

It was undoubtedly a more disappointing showing for him, but he was far from poor. He still got three on target from five efforts and was unlucky to not make the breakthrough himself (offside disallowed) and plenty recognised how he again led the line, caused problems and played his part in tiring out their defence, even though others capitalised on that.
