Patrick Bamford was on the score-sheet as Leeds United opened their 2019-20 Championship campaign with a 3-1 victory against Bristol City last weekend.
However, the 25-year-old could not inspire his team to all three points on Sunday as Marcelo Bielsa’s side were held to a 1-1 draw by Nottingham Forest.
According to WhoScored, Bamford had five shots in the clash at Elland Road but was unable to find the back of the net with Pablo Hernandez getting the goal for the hosts.
And a number of the Leeds supporters have taken to social media to criticise the striker for some wayward finishing.
There is a lot of pressure on Bamford to score the goals this season when considering that Kemar Roofe joined Anderlecht in the latter stages of the transfer window.
On-loan Arsenal attacker Eddie Nketiah has been signed to boost Bielsa’s options in the final third. However, Bamford really needs to step up and have a big season.

If Bamford can’t finish now, how do you coach that?? He’s been playing as a pro footballer 9 years practicing it… can’t teach composure #lufc

#lufc Sorry, had enough of Bamford. Not taking chances puts whole team under pressure. Pls start Costa and Nketiah
