Jordan Botaka claims assist on Leeds under-21 debut...setting up Casper Sloth

Leeds United beat Bristol City 3-0 in a development side fixture this afternoon.

Jordan Botaka claimed an assist on his first appearance for Leeds United's under-21 side, helping them to a 3-0 win over Bristol City. 

Botaka's arrival at Elland Road has excited Leeds' supporters, and he showed a glimpse of his creative qualities to set up Casper Sloth's opener in the match. 

Frank Mulhern grabbed the other two goals in the contest, as the Whites cruised to success against their Championship rivals. 

Botaka's performance will have encouraged supporters, too, with hopes high for his future at the club. 

The 22-year-old has become a viral sensation on Youtube, with his dribbling skill particularly obvious, and there are hopes that his raw potential can give Uwe Rosler's first-team a new attacking option in the near future. 

Sloth will also have done his first-team chances no harm by netting in the development match. 

The Danish midfielder has not played a competitive match for Leeds since February, after seemingly falling out of favour under Neil Redfearn's stewardship. 

If Rosler does decide to call any of the performers in the under-21 match into the first-team, then they will not have too long to recover from this afternoon's exertions - as Leeds' next match is tomorrow against Ipswich Town.
