'Not the finished product' - Leeds fans react to Ekuban display v Port Vale
By Danny Wright
Caleb Ekuban managed to find the net on his Leeds debut against Port Vale on Wednesday night – and the supporters were more than impressed with what they saw from their new striker.
Thomas Christiansen’s men ran out 4-1 winners over the League Two side to book their place in the next round of the Carabao Cup.
Samuel Saiz bagged a hat-trick in the Elland Road clash before Ekuban managed to complete the thrashing in the 83rd minute to give himself a well-earned goal scoring debut.
The former Chievo striker had been named to start in the lone striker role ahead of Chris Wood and made a good case for him to oust the New Zealand international from the first-team squad with his display on Wednesday.
After the game, Leeds fans were over the moon with what they saw from Ekuban, however one fan suggested that there is still more to come by saying that he is “not the finished product” just yet.

Thought Ekuban was very good second half, if he could get a bit of consistency he could be useful this season #LUFC

Fair play to Ekuban too, barely had a touch and takes his one chance like that. Good stuff #lufc

Great performance and result. The Ekuban goal a perfect, clinical late counter. Man, we've got some players this year. #LUFC
