Leeds loanee Jean-Kevin Augustin should be running scared

If there were any lingering doubts over whether Leeds could utterly demolish teams then they were put to bed on Saturday lunchtime.

The Whites have had trouble finishing their chances this season and as of February 25th, they should have scored 14 more goals than they actually have.

However, their display against Hull showed they have what it takes to put their opposition to the sword, winning 4-0 on the road.

Luke Ayling and Pablo Hernandez gave Leeds a two-goal advantage but a brace from Tyler Roberts wrapped things up superbly.

The Welshman has had trouble with injury this season, having fluid drained from his knee last summer and picking up little niggles as the campaign has gone on.

He came on for Patrick Bamford midway through the second 45 minutes on Saturday and put in a devastating performance.

Roberts’ first goal was fired in with his left foot before a brilliant header from Mateusz Klich’s ball over the top found the back of the net. You could see the relief in his celebration as he ran towards the Leeds supporters after his first strike.

This moment will have been a big one, not only for Roberts but also for the strikers at Leeds – especially Jean-Kevin Augustin.

The Frenchman arrived in January on a loan deal but like former loanee Eddie Nketiah, has been behind Patrick Bamford in the pecking order. He is yet to start for the Whites, has played just 49 minutes, and has also missed the last couple of matches through injury.

Who should play up top?

Augustin

If Augustin was struggling to get into the side before then, two goals from makeshift forward Roberts will have dealt his chances of securing regular minutes an even bigger blow.

This moment will surely be enough to have him running scared. Not only that, but it should also have Bamford rather worried.

Meanwhile, Leeds fans SLAMMED one of their players despite victory on Saturday…
