Revealed: 36% of fans want Bielsa to hand Edmondson a chance

Leeds United have seen their promotion charge hit a wobble in recent weeks, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side being held to draws either side of the international break by Middlesbrough and Millwall.

On top of this, the Peacocks also have significant injury problems in their attacking ranks as Patrick Bamford will face a number of months on the sideline while Kemar Roofe was also absent from Saturday’s 1-1 draw.

That has left Bielsa with three inexperienced options to select from in the form of Ryan Edmondson, Tyler Roberts and Jack Clarke, so we asked fans which young forward they believe should be given a chance to sign.

In a very tight vote, Edmondson finished top with 36% of the votes while Roberts and Clarke, the former of whom made his Championship debut in the 1-1 draw with Millwall, finished level with 32% of the votes each.

Roberts struggled to get into the game and was hauled off after 68 minutes for Stuart Dallas, suggesting that Bielsa could look at his other two options for Tuesday evening’s clash with Preston.
