Bamford scored another goal in Leeds’ 2-0 win at Southampton on Tuesday evening to take his tally to 16 goals in the Premier League this season.

 

Ahead of Leeds’ return to the Premier League at the start of the season, there were question marks over the forward’s ability to produce the good in the top tier of English football.

 

 

His record this term has taken many by surprise, but Roberts stressed that no one at Leeds is the least bit shocked.

 

The Whites star stressed that the Leeds players always believed that Bamford had it in him to do it on the big stage and everyone is delighted that the striker has proved his critics wrong.

 

 

Roberts said on LUTV: “A lot of people were surprised about it [Bamford’s record this season].

 

“But everybody in the Leeds team knew that he is capable of that and we are not surprised by the consistency, the performances and the goals that he has had.

 

 

“And also he has got the assists as well and so it has been an amazing season for him.

 

“I am buzzing for him.”

 

Leeds have won ten games on the road this season in the league and are now guaranteed to finish in the top half of the Premier League.
