Leeds star hails 'outstanding' teammate on Twitter after U21 match with Wednesday

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds United's development side drew 0-0 with Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road on Tuesday.

Leeds United's Tyler Denton has praised the 'outstanding' contribution of his teammate Lewis Coyle against Sheffield Wednesday on Twitter after the Whites' development match on Tuesday.

Leeds' and Wednesday's U21 sides met at Elland Road earlier today, as they battled to a 0-0 draw in front of a decent crowd.

It was an experience that went down well with Denton and he reserved special praise for Coyle's role for the team.

It will be heartening to see Coyle earning such lavish praise from his teammates, especially as he managed to stand out in a side packed with quality.

Leeds named the likes of Adryan, Casper Sloth, Dario Del Fabro, Brian Montenegro and Edgar Cani in their team so to see Coyle making the biggest impression is a huge recommendation of his talents.

There are high hopes around the 19-year-old's future at Elland Road and he won't have done his chances of getting senior football any harm with a performance of this quality.

Neil Redfearn has shown his faith in Leeds' youth system this season already and if Coyle can continue impressing it would not be beyond the realms of possibility that he could break into the senior side before the end of the campaign. 

Lewis Walters also reacted on the social media site after the match, as he made his first appearance after his comeback from injury.
