Hull City manager Liam Rosenior has told BBC Radio Humberside that Leeds United have a player in Joel Piroe that is “incredible” and if the striker is given a chance – he will score, ahead of Wednesday’s clash.

Piroe has made an excellent start to life at Elland Road. Already, the Dutchman has three goals in just three games – having scored a brace against Millwall on Sunday, in our second league win of the season.

Leeds will be hoping he can continue this incredible rate of goalscoring at this early stage. Starting, with Wednesday’s trip to Hull. A Hull side that have started well – picking up 11 points from six games.

Rosenior has got his side playing well and in the top six at this stage, Hull are certainly playing above their station. It will be a difficult trip for Leeds come Wednesday. Rosenior is way of new signing Piroe.

“He is an outstanding player, outstanding for Swansea. Give him a chance, more often than not he can finish. They have threats but I am sure Daniel Farke will be making them understand our threats too.”

Liam Rosenior says Leeds player Joel Piroe is incredible

He has the ability, and the striker’s difference, to provide the missing cog in this Leeds side. Last term, we didn’t need a new attacking midfielder, a winger, or an unproven right-back. We needed a no.9.

Finally, we have got one but it has taken relegation to do it. Perhaps, Piroe can now fire Leeds back into the Premier League with his predatory instinct in the final third. His goalscoring already is a large sign.
