Leeds United head into their Under-21 Professional Development League game against Barnsley off the back of a 3-2 defeat against Ipswich Town.

This is a great chance for the Leeds youngsters to impress first team caretaker boss Neil Redfearn, who is extremely experienced with bringing through younger players for the first team.

It’s also a great platform for older and more established first team stars to get game time under their belts and improve their match fitness ahead of important domestic games with the senior side.

Leeds are in a great position in the northern league table and will be looking to improve upon a decent start to the league this season.

Leeds used this platform as an excuse to give Adryan his debut last week and they could feed summer signings into the side over the course of the season. They were unlucky against Ipswich last time round but need to dig deep to try and keep clean sheets.
