Confirmed: Leeds United Under-21 side to play Brentford

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United's Under-21 side take on Brentford this afternoon.

Leeds have a youth system regarded as one of the best in the country, and the Whites’ Under-21 side take on Brentford this afternoon.

With Leeds always looking for the next big thing to break through into their first-team set-up, the young players are hoping to catch the eye of first-team head coach Uwe Rosler with a strong performance at youth level.

Brentford themselves have a promising youth academy and a keen desire to establish their own products in the first-team set-up, and the game will be a match up between two teams who have started the Under-21 Professional Development League 2 Northern Division in solid, if slow form.

Leeds have won three and lost two of their five games played, sitting in 11th place - five points off league leaders Colchester. Brentford, meanwhile, are four places behind Leeds, with seven points from five games.

A victory for either side would give them the chance to move back into the top end of the league table, with both teams holding two games in hand over a number of the top 10 challengers.

Here is how Leeds United’s Under-21’s line up against Brentford on Tuesday afternoon.

Leeds United Under-21 starting XI: Grimes, Coyle, Vann, Skelton, Denton, Purver, Parkin, Stokes, Walters, McDaid, Mulhern

Subs: Peacock-Farrell, Pearce, Lyman, Oduor, Wilks
