Confirmed: Leeds United under-21 line-up v Sheffield Wednesday - Hunt and Phillips start

Leeds United 2

Here is the Leeds United under-21 side to take on Sheffield Wednesday this lunchtime.

Leeds United under-21s: Grimes, Booker, Denton, Purver, Del Fabro, Skelton, Thompson, Hunt, Stokes, Parkin, Phillips

Subs: Atkinson, Berry, Mulhern, McDaid, Lyman

Focus switches away from the first team briefly as the Leeds under-21 side head into their first game after Neil Redfearn was confirmed as head coach of the first team.

Redfearn has done a great job with the youngsters at Leeds so far this season and they will be aiming to go back to the top of the Northern section of the Professional Development League with a win against Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds have led the group for most of the season and they have been challenged by Nottingham Forest, who have pushed them down into second place. Leeds have a record of five wins, two draws and two defeats from all games so far, with 16 goals scored and 12 conceded.

This is a great chance for the players on show to continue their development and impress Redfearn who will have one eye on the result as he’s only just left the academy setup.
