Leeds United Crest

Here's the Leeds United under-21 side to take on Colchester United this evening.

Leeds United under-21s: Grimes, Booker, Del Fabro, Killock, Taylor, Purver, Phillips, Thompson, Dawson, Montenegro, Hunt

Subs: Atkinson, Denton, Stokes, Parkin, Vann

Leeds United will be looking to maintain and improve their lead at the top of the Northern section of the under-21 Professional Development League when they host Colchester at Elland Road.

The under-21 platform has been priceless for some of the club’s summer signings in the recent past with Adryan, Dario Del Fabro and Brian Montenegro all regularly appearing in the youth ranks.

The under-21 side is on a remarkable run of results, which has seen six wins from the last seven games with the only defeat coming at home against Queens Park Rangers.

Fortunately for the under-21 side, they were able to play during the international break with three more points in the match against Bristol City this time last week, which allowed them to maintain momentum when other under-21 sides around the country didn’t have games.
