Marcelo Bielsa had praise for Tyler Roberts after the young Wales striker scored a brace against Preston last night.

Roberts has spent almost his entire career as a striker, and while the roles under Bielsa have been quite fluid at times, it’s obvious that Roberts does feel more comfortable as a striker than as a winger.

He created a few chances against Millwall, but was unlucky to not score. Against Preston, he took his chances well and scored a pair of great goals to heap misery on the Lancashire club.

If he’s our third choice striker, the rest of the league is doomed.
