Video: Casper Sloth barely reacts after scoring for Leeds United's under-21 side

Casper Sloth netted for Leeds United's under-21 side on Monday.

You could hardly blame Casper Sloth if he has having trouble motivating himself playing for Leeds United's under-21 side.

The midfielder netted twice on Monday in a 3-3 draw with Bolton, and barely reacted at all after finding the net.

Sloth calmly finished off a well worked move which took pace with a flick-on from Frank Mulhern to Souleymane Doukara, who threaded through a pass to Sloth.

The 23-year-old has not featured at all for the first team this season, and has had to make do with under-21 football instead.

After arriving at the club in 2014 as a Danish international who lined up against Steven Gerrard at Wembley months earlier, he has had a dramatic fall from grace since signing for Leeds.

His talent, technically speaking, is evident, but he has not shown himself to be suited to Championship football when given a chance.

All he can do is keep playing under-21 games and do his best when called upon in the hope he will earn another shot.

With a new manager at the helm in Steve Evans it is possible, but already he is onto his fifth head coach since signing for Leeds, following Hockaday, Milanic, Redfearn and Rosler, and if he can't make it work under Evans, the writing will be on the wall regarding an exit in the January transfer window.
