Bamford collected double points for his Fantasy Football team by scoring against Palace
He told Sky Sports: ‘The most important thing is getting the three points but it is nice to get to 100 career goals. It is probably long overdue but nice to get there. It is important to make your home ground like a fortress. It is kind of difficult with our pitch at the moment and we almost suit playing away but this was well deserved.
‘Non stop running is first and foremost. You have to give 100%. The first job as a striker is to defend. You have to apply the pressure. Also costly mixing it up. It is physically demanding, I am not going to lie but it has developed me into a much stronger person and player.
‘It is good if you are getting talked about I guess but there are four or five strikers who have not really been involved with England before and they are doing well. It will be interesting to see who does get called up and whoever does will fully deserve it.

‘After being out of the league for 16 years it is important for a club like Leeds to get a footing and build from that. This is no more than we’ve deserved. It bodes well for the future of Leeds.
After Leeds beat Leicester 3-1 last month, Bamford joked that he regretted passing to Jack Harrison to slot in the third goal instead of shooting because he has himself in his Fantasy Football team!
But Bamford made up for it by collecting double points for his Fantasy Football team after netting the second goal against Crystal Palace.
He said: ‘I captained myself (in Fantasy Football). After I missed that one in the first half I was kicking myself so I am glad I scored.’
