​Leeds boss Bielsa pleased with returning Bamford, Ayling

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa was delighted with the impacts of Patrick Bamford and Luke Ayling against Brentford.

While Ayling put in a solid display for the Premier League side, Bamford made a pivotal impact late in the clash that finished 2-2.

Bamford's 95th minute equalised secured a valuable point for his side in their fight for survival.

"Ayling had a satisfactory game and Patrick scored a goalscorers goal," Bielsa stated post-game, per the club website.

"In the centre of the pitch where he [Bamford] came on, it was difficult to find the ball. But finally, he gave us the equaliser, which for our expectations is very valuable given how we got it.

"The players that are used to scoring are usually in the right place at the right moment. What we value about this goal is the opportunism of it.

"Before the game it wasn't a good result, after the first half it wasn't as well, but when the game is finished we value what we earned."
