Redfearn singles out two stars for praise, reacts to Casper Sloth's performance

Elland Road East Stand

The Leeds boss gave his verdict on Lewis Cook, Sam Byram and Casper Sloth's displays at Bolton.

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn felt Sam Byram and Lewis Cook were excellent as his side drew 1-1 at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

A Rodolph Austin penalty gave Leeds a first-half lead at the Reebok Stadium, before Eidur Gudjohnsen equalised with a spot-kick of his own after the break.

And Redfearn was impressed with the youngsters' displays against Neil Lennon's Bolton side, while also giving his verdict on Casper Sloth's performance.

Sloth has found himself out of the Leeds team in recent weeks, although he was brought back into the fold at Sunderland in the FA Cup last weekend - and again today.

The draw was not enough to prevent Leeds from sitting in 21st place in the Championship, just two points off the relegation zone.

Next up for Redfearn's side are two home games against Birmingham City and league-leaders Bournemouth.

January is then rounded off with a trip to Huddersfield for Leeds.
