LUFC Poleon hoping for a big season

LUFC Poleon hoping for a big season

Leeds United attacker Dominic Poleon says he is hoping to have a big season with the club after an impressive start to pre-season.

The 19-year-old has scored in both of Leeds opening two games this summer and after a frustrating first season with the first team at Leeds last season; he says this season is a huge season for him. "It is massively important. Before we came away, I had a good summer and worked hard and the manager has said I have come back looking stronger and fitter," Poleon told Yorkshire Radio.

"Fingers crossed, this season will be a big season for me and hopefully I can play myself into the team and I just have to keep up my form."

Poleon made eight appearances for Leeds last season, scoring on his first start in the championship in the 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest. He found himself being loaned out to Bury and then Sheffield United, as former boss Neil Warnock preferred to see him gaining experience away from the club.

The most annoying thing for fans was it was obvious for most to see that Poleon could have played a big part for Leeds with his raw aggression in the final third of the pitch.

Poleon was recalled from his loan spell with Sheffield United following the arrival of Brian McDermott in April and he scored in his only appearance for the new Leeds boss on the final day of the season at Watford.

The product of the Leeds United academy could give McDermott options this season either in a wide role or as a striker and the Leeds boss indicated earlier this week that he wasn`t going to send the youngster out on loan.

Poleon could be this seasons Sam Byram.
