Luke Ayling has expressed his delight for Oil McBurnie after scoring for the second consecutive game for Sheffield United, as the Leeds player posted on Instagram.
The Leeds right-back told the Sheffield United striker it was a “great miss” to find his goalscoring boots once again.
The 26-year-old went 43 league games without a goal until he scored during his side’s 1-1 draw at Luton last Friday.
Before he was at it again, this time scoring, the Blades recorded a 4-0 win over surprise packages Reading on Tuesday night.
Paul Heckingbottom’s side moved to the top of the Championship table as a result and have now become the pace-setters to start the new season.
However, when McBurnie expressed his delight at scoring again, Ayling posted the following message in the comments section.
“It’s a great sight to see,” Ayling said. “I like bumps.”
CAN HECKINGBOTTOM HELP SHEFFIELD UNITED TO PROMOTION?
The Blades boss was in the Leeds dugout before the now famous reign under the recently departed Marcelo Bielsa.
Heckingbottom was only in the dugout for a short time before being replaced and it was a call that will now live long in the club’s history for the right reasons.
This isn’t unkind to Heckingbottom at all, as he didn’t do much wrong apart from taking over a struggling team at the time.
But the Blades have made a strong start to the new season and could now win promotion to England’s top flight for the first time as a manager.
