London - Tom Adeyemi was pleased with his performance in
Leeds United's 2-1 win against Hull City in the latest round of matches played
in the Championship and has opined that he flourished because he was played in
an offensive position.
On his return to the starting XI for the first time since
October 29, the Cardiff City loanee repaid manager Steve Evans's faith by
scoring on the stroke of half time to give Leeds United a 2-0 lead.

''I certainly enjoyed the role that I played, playing
slightly further forward than I have done in the past,'' Adeyemi said on Leeds
United official webpage.
''I think it helped me having Liam Bridcutt behind me and in
front of the back four. It gave me the licence to push on.''
The number 24 added: ''I was able to break into the box on a
few occasions and get my goal as well, so it was a good day.
''Some people see my size and my build and think that I’m
just going to be winning tackles and playing in front of the back four, but I
like to think I can do the box-to-box role as well.''
Adeyemi opened his goalscoring account for Leeds United
against Derby County in August and Saturday's goal at Elland Road was his
second for the club.For
