Leeds United’s under-21 side have extra incentive to put in some effort and impress during the game against Brentford this evening.
The international break means the senior side doesn’t have a game this weekend and first team boss Neil Redfearn might use the occasion to take a closer looks at the performances of the youth team and examine the talent on show.
It’s a great chance for the youngsters to impress and for any first team squad members to show they can play a part in the top side over the rest of the season.
Leeds’ under-21 side are some way off the tally of Nottingham Forest at the top of the Northern section in the Professional Development League but the attack and the defence are impressive in terms of the stats from this season.
The back four in particular has been effective with only three goals more conceded when compared to Forest and there is the opportunity for a positive response after a disappointing performance against Crystal Palace.
