Confirmed: Leeds United under-21 team v Huddersfield: Erwin starts

Leeds United's under-21 side face Huddersfield.

Leeds United's under-21 side face rivals Huddersfield Town this afternoon.

The match takes place at Thorp Arch at 1pm, and their line-up is as follows:

Starting XI: Peacock-Farrell, Purver, Vann, Skelton, Denton (c), Phillips, Lyman, Stokes, Walters, Erwin, Parkin.

Subs: Huffer, Pearce, Downing, Oduor, Wilks

The notable starter is summer signing Lee Erwin, who is back playing for the under-21s after a recent loan spell at League One side Bury.

Erwin started for the first team on Friday night against Wycombe Wanderers in a friendly, and scored the opening goal in a 2-0 win, with Sam Byram netting the second.

This game will be designed he help Erwin improve his fitness, with a view to getting him ready to feature against Rotherham United at the weekend, possibly from the bench.

Another goal here would be a further boost for his confidence, as he bids to get his Leeds career going having been overlooked by former boss Uwe Rosler.
