Charlie Taylor and Alex Mowatt react on Twitter to Leeds under-21 win

Elland Road East Stand

Leeds United beat Leicester City to progress to the next round of the Premier League under-21 cup.

Leeds United's youngsters edged out Leicester City to progress to the last 16 of the Premier League under-21 Cup.

Leicester had gone 1-0 up in the game being played at Nuneaton, but Leeds fought back amid poor weather conditions.

Teenage striker Luke Parkin scored both goals for Leeds, with the second set up in the 89th minute after an excellent run from Chris Dawson.

Featuring in the Leeds side was summer loan signing Brian Montenegro and permanent addition Casper Sloth.

Charlie Taylor, on loan at Fleetwood last season, also started, and took to Twitter after the game to toast the victory.

Another teenager, Alex Mowatt also commented to praise goalscorer Parkin, but he was not involved himself thanks to his breakthrough into the Leeds first team this season.

Parkin, 19, is highly rated at the club, but potentially needs first team fringe players like Steve Morison to be sold before he gets his chance.

Leeds travel to face Watford in the next round of the competition in the new year.
