Patrick Bamford will be “buzzing” after he matched multiple Leeds United records with his hat-trick display against Aston Villa last week.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Leeds and Spurs midfielder also praised his former club’s performance in the game given they were missing key players through injury.

Aston Villa had a 100 per cent record in the league before Bamford’s second-half hat-trick secured a 3-0 win for Marcelo Bielsa and his men.

The Englishman became just the second player in Leeds history to score in the first three away matches of a top-flight season.

His haul of six goals in the Premier League’s opening six matches also matched Eric Cantona’s club record from the 1992/93 season.

Asked by Football Insider what he made of Bamford’s display at Villa Park, Brown said: “He’s done brilliantly.

“The goal where he opened the face of the foot for the hat-trick was brilliant. It’s just great, he’s worked so hard.

“He’s now got six goals in the Premier League, so he’ll be buzzing. His interviews are great and it’s great to see.

“With the injuries Leeds United had there was a bit of doubt over how they could go and perform and it was brilliant. Now they’ve got a tough game against Leicester City.”

Prior to this season, Bamford had scored just one goal in 27 Premier League appearances across spells with Crystal Palace, Norwich City, Burnley and Middlesborough.

The former England Under-21 international is now in his third season at Elland Road and he has scored 32 goals in 72 appearances across all competitions in that time.
