Leeds teenager Kalvin Phillips reacts to scoring on Elland Road debut

Leeds youngster Kalvin Phillips was delighted to have scored his first goal for the club against Cardiff City.

Leeds United slipped to a third straight defeat on Saturday, as Cardiff City edged The Whites out with a 2-1 victory at Elland Road.

Neil Redfearn's men lost 3-0 and 4-3 to Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers over the Easter weekend, and their poor run of form continued on Saturday.

Goals from Sean Morrison and Aron Gunnarsson gave Cardiff all three points in West Yorkshire, though midfielder Kalvin Phillips did score for Leeds in between.

The 19-year-old only made his debut last Monday against Wolves, and was handed his first Elland Road start, capping it off with a well taken goal in the first half.

Phillips has followed in the footsteps of Sam Byram, Charlie Taylor, Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt in making the step up from the Leeds academy to the first-team, and looks set to be a star of the club's future.

Fans were full of praise for him after the game, especially when Phillips took to Twitter to celebrate his goal - but reflect on a disappointing result for Leeds.

Leeds fans will now be hoping to see Phillips in action on a regular basis until the end of the season - where Leeds could even line up with a midfield of only Leeds academy products, with Byram, Cook, Mowatt, Phillips and Lewis Walters a real possibility under Redfearn.
