Bamford has spoken on the subject again this week, saying he's 'noted it down' after the pair clashed early in the Turf Moor contest between the sides last month.

The game ended 1-1, with Bamford prodding in a late equaliser for the visitors, and after the game the former Burnley loanee said Tarkowski had produced some 'jiu jitsu' moves on him as they clashed in the opening stages of the contest.

And the striker has not forgotten the exchange, with the 28-year-old expanding further during a Q&A session with Sky Sports.

Asked if he had been practicing his Jiu Jitsu, he said: "I got on with Tarky, but what he did on the pitch was out of order.

"We had a little tussle, which is normal. We went down to the ground but he landed on me, and obviously he’s a bit bigger than me. So it was a bit like a body slam.

"I’m on the floor underneath on him and I’m trying to get up, but my leg was stuck between his. And this is what annoyed me. He tried to do some twist with his legs while my leg was stuck in the middle.

"It could have snapped. It could have hurt my knee. That’s why I was angry with him. It’s been laughed off a little bit, but I’ve noted it down."

While Bamford made the last comment with something of a wry smile, it will be interesting to see the pair face off when they meet at Elland Road on New Year's Day.
