Several Leeds United youngsters have a chance to impress first team boss Neil Redfearn this afternoon in the Professional Development League game against Nottingham Forest.

Dario Del Fabro, Chris Dawson and Brian Montenegro have all been on the fringes of the first team over recent weeks and this is another great chance for them to prove they’re ready to make the step up.

This is a difficult match to call because it’s between the first (Leeds) and second (Forest) placed teams in the Northern ranked section of the PDL, with the Whites holding a two point advantage over Forest.

Forest’s attack has been more productive this season with 23 goals scored but the Leeds defence has been more effective conceding six fewer goals which could make the difference in this sort of contest.
