Jack Harrison was the unlikely matchwinner for Leeds United on Saturday as they beat Sheffield Wednesday to move three points clear in the race for automatic promotion.
The winger has established himself as a regular in Marcelo Bielsa’s XI in 2019 but has gone slightly under the radar, with the likes of Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe understandably attracting the plaudits.
However, Saturday was Harrison’s night as he scored with a classy finish on what felt like a defining weekend in the Championship.
The 22-year-old arrived from Manchester City at the start of the season and he explained to the Yorkshire Evening Post how the Premier League champions have been monitoring his progress.
“There is a special support group that works only with loan players so I have been very grateful to have not only the support from Leeds and all the staff here but some of the staff at Man City as well.
“The feedback has been good. We are always looking on ways that I can improve and, as a young player, that’s all I can ask for really.”
Harrison is sure to start once again on Friday when the Whites host Wigan.
This is an interesting insight from Harrison as it shows how the top clubs will always be looking at how their players are progressing, even if they aren’t likely to be in the first-team in the future.
As he says, it’s clearly helped his game as he gets more ways to try and improve.
It’s been a move that has suited all parties and the focus now will be to ensure it ends positively with promotion.
