Looks like Patrick Bamford knows he’s not going to unseat Kemar Roofe right now, at least not with the form that Roofe is in right now.
Speaking to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post Bamford said:
He (Roofe) has had the whole of pre-season with the manager, working on his ideas.
If anything, bringing in new faces ups everyone’s game and that can only be good for the team
He was brilliant at Derby and took his goals brilliantly. I’m really happy for him and, as long as he keeps going, the team will do well. I know that might mean I have to wait a little bit to play but I’m ready whenever
There is no doubt that Bamford wants to get into the starting line-up, but he’s aware that he needs to wait and earn his chances. He had a number of opportunities on Tuesday, so it’s only a matter of time before he’ll get a chance to show the same kind of form that saw him score a hat-trick at Elland Road against Leeds for Middlesbrough last season.
