Elland Road East Stand

The 19-year-old featured for Leeds Under-21s on Monday afternoon.

Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips was hard at work on Monday afternoon, featuring for the Under-21s as they lost 2-0 to Huddersfield Town.

The teenager had played regularly for the senior side earlier this season under Uwe Rosler but has dropped down the pecking order since.

Will Steve Evans be giving him his chance in the Leeds side in the coming weeks? He was pictured battling two opposition players during the Under-21 clash on Monday and looked hard at work.

The competition for places in midfield looks like it will only increase, though. Tommaso Bianchi featured against Wycombe on Friday night, while Luke Murphy, Lewis Cook, Alex Mowatt, Tom Adeyemi and more can all operate in the middle of the park in some capacity.

Leeds face Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon, where they will come up against former boss Neil Redfearn at Elland Road. It will give Evans the opportunity to win his third Championship game in a row with the Yorkshire club - and fourth in a row if you count the Wycombe friendly.

Rotherham, meanwhile, are on a poor run of form heading into the clash.
