Paul Hart comments on Casper Sloth's attitude after Under-21 performance

Leeds United

Casper Sloth scored twice for Leeds Under-21's today.

Leeds United Under-21's manager Paul Hart has told LUTV that he has been impressed with Casper Sloth's attitude despite limited first-team opportunities.

Hart saw his Under-21 side record a 3-3 draw against Bolton Wanderers earlier today, with midfielder Sloth scoring twice, before Souleymane Doukara bagged the third goal.

It was, unsurprisingly, Sloth who stole the show for Leeds, in a performance which the Dane really needed if he is to break back in to the Leeds first team.

Sloth, 23, has become the forgotten man at Elland Road since signing from AGF last summer, and has now been relegated to Under-21 duty as a result of his performances in the Championship.

The midfielder did show what he can do today though, scoring two goals in front of Under-21 manager Hart, and he was certainly impressed with Sloth's performance.

Speaking to LUTV, Hart admitted that Sloth's goals were 'great', and claimed that Sloth's attitude has been exemplary during his time with the Under-21's.

"Two great goals, two great finishes and great football to get him in to those positions," said Hart. "Casper's shown a great attitude when he's come and played for us," he added.

Once a Denmark international, Sloth now has next to no chance of playing for his country in the Euro 2016 play-offs, and he must be considering an exit from Elland Road unless he receives more playing time under new manager Steve Evans.
