Tyler Roberts’ emergence as a striking option for Leeds United is “massive”, according to Noel Whelan.
The former Whites striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the 22-year-old can “thrive” after contributing two “amazing” performances in the past week.
Roberts grabbed his first Leeds United goal this season as the Yorkshire side secured a last-gasp 2-2 home draw against Brentford on Sunday (5 December).
