Garry Monk has confessed that he wanted to sign another striker in the summer transfer window.
Leeds have endured a difficult start to the new season and have picked up just four points from their opening six Championship matches.
Scoring goals has been one of the team’s difficulties in the new campaign and they have only managed five league goals to date.
Spearhead Chris Wood has scored two of the club’s goals with Marcus Antonsson, Kalvin Philipps and Hadi Sacko also chipping in with one apiece.
Speaking at his media conference on Monday, Leeds manager Monk had admitted that he hoped to sign another striker but is confident in the attackers he has at his disposal, as quoted by the personal Twitter account of Yorkshire Evening Post correspondent Phil Hay.
Monk said he would have liked another striker before the window closed but still thinks he has options who "will score goals in this league"

Monk did add forwards Kemar Roofe, Antonsson and Sacko on loan to his squad over the summer window and has backed them to score goals.
Former Leicester striker Wood is likely to be crucial to the club’s goal scoring chances and has scored 16 goals in 43 appearances since he joined.
Leeds face fellow strugglers Blackburn on Tuesday and will be hoping to pick up just their second wind of the season to steer them away from the relegation places.
In other Leeds transfer news, the club’s new midfielder has revealed why he moved to Elland Road.
