Eddie Nketiah scored an equaliser for Leeds United on Tuesday, despite starting the game on the bench once again.
For the 13th game in 13, Patrick Bamford started for Leeds in the Championship, this time against Preston North End. For the eighth game in a row, he came off the pitch having failed to score or assist a goal.
Nketiah is still yet to receive a start, so he’s had to settle for making an impact in his substitute appearances. He did just that against Preston, coming on with his team 1-0 down to score the equaliser three minutes from the end.
Just as he started his senior career, with late goals for Arsenal against Norwich City, Nketiah is making a name for himself with late efforts with Leeds.
The striker scored the winner in the 81st minute against Brentford, he scored one and won a penalty for another in the final 20 minutes against Barnsley for 2-0, and he now has an 87th-minute equaliser to his name after last night against Preston North End.
That’s an extra five points his goals have won the team, boosting Leeds from 10th to 2nd place. All despite the fact he hasn’t started a single Championship game.
