Leeds United suffered a 4-3 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux in the Championship earlier this evening.

England international cricketer Tim Bresnan has taken to social networking site Twitter to praise Leeds United’s performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home this evening.

The Whites suffered a 4-3 defeat to Wolves at Molineux in the Championship, but their performance was encouraging.

Leeds were 3-1 down at one stage in the encounter, but they pulled back to level the game at 3-3, only for Dave Edwards to head home a late winner.

Bresnan, who helped England win The Ashes in 201011, was pleased with the spirit shown by the Leeds players against Wolves, and was especially encouraged by the number of youngsters in the team.

Leeds head coach Neil Redfearn has given chances to young players throughout the season, and against Wolves he handed 19-year-old midfielder Kalvin Phillips his first-team debut.

The likes of Alex Mowatt and Lewis Cook have all progressed under Redfearn, who has done a truly brilliant job at Leeds.

Of course, the problem with young players is that they can make mistakes at crucial stages, but for the future of Leeds, it is hugely important that Redfearn remains in charge and continues to put faith in the club’s youngsters.
