Loan watch: Leeds ace continues goal-a-game record
By Dominic Toner
Leeds loanee Lee Erwin continued his recent form by scoring for Oldham in their 1-1 draw away to Peterborough on Saturday.
The 23-year-old is currently on a season-long loan at League One club Oldham from the Whites.
The striker has been in great touch in front of goal and continued his recent goal-a-game record at the weekend, with his 11th minute striker earning a point for his side.
He has managed to net four times in his last four appearances and is enjoying a purple patch of form.
Erwin has now scored eight goals during his 34 appearances this season and is showing exactly why Leeds signed him in 2015 from Scottish club Motherwell.

The Scotsman endured a frustrating time at Elland Road last season and failed to cement his position in the side.
He made just 12 appearances throughout the entire campaign and failed to complete 90 minutes on any occasion.
Current Leeds boss Garry Monk decided to send Erwin out on loan in the summer and he has proved himself in League One.
The forward will hope that his recent form has been noticed by his parent club, who are competing for promotion to the Premier League.
Leeds have emerged as likely play-off contenders this season after a very consistent season, but there have been question marks over their attacking depth.
Chris Wood has been the star man for the Whites this season with 27 goals, but Souleymane Doukara’s tally of five is the next best contribution.
Erwin will be hoping for a second chance at Elland Road to prove himself and his current form can’t be doing himself any harm.
