Neil Redfearn gives verdict on Borthwick-Jackson's display after Leeds draw v Preston
By Harvey Byrne
Former Leeds assistant and manager Neil Redfearn has told that Cameron Borthwick-Jackson looked very dangerous in attack after the club’s 0-0 draw with Preston on Saturday afternoon.
The 20-year-old left-back made the switch to Elland Road last week and made his second appearance in a Whites shirt against Preston on Saturday after making his debut in the League Cup encounter with Port Vale in midweek.
He will have been hoping to start his league career at Leeds with a win, but a strong defence from Alex Neil’s side ensured that they left Yorkshire with a point despite having a man sent off.
Some of the Leeds attack came in for criticism after the match, but Redfearn believes Borthwick-Jackson done his best to try and help a result, stating that he played a number of threatening balls into the Preston penalty area.
“There were two or three great crosses from Borthwick-Jackson at left-back,” told Redfearn speaking on Radio Yorkshire’s YouTube channel.

“He curled two great balls around the back of Preston’s back four and he was inches away from getting on the end of it, Chris Wood.”
Borthwick-Jackson spent the last campaign in the Championship with Wolves on a loan deal from Manchester United, but it was a largely unsuccessful one for him after he made just seven appearances.
He will be hoping for much more first team football with Leeds over the next campaign and he will be looking to help the Yorkshire giants make their return to the Premier League.
