The 21-year-old got stuck in for Leeds at Thorp Arch.

Lee Erwin is back in training with the Leeds United first team at Thorp Arch and boss Steve Evans seems delighted to have him back.

The young forward was brought to Leeds this summer but has barely been used since, largely playing for the Under-21s before being loaned out to Bury.

And previous boss Uwe Rosler simply neglected him. When a depleted squad struggling for form sends one of its options out to a lower league, you have to question the judgement of those who sent him away.

Now that he has returned, Evans will likely use him for Leeds as the Yorkshire club look to build on their first win under the Scot against Cardiff City.

In the above picture, the 21-year-old can be seen getting stuck in during training with the Whites and Leeds fans will surely welcome a fresh approach if the forward can inject some much-needed energy in the final third.

United registered their first home victory of the season - and in months - against Cardiff but had to rely on a screamer from Alex Mowatt, which was a long shot from deep. In an around the penalty area, Leeds need new options. Could Erwin provide a good one?
