Leeds United beat Brentford in the FA Youth Cup to set up a clash with Manchester City.

Paul Hart's Leeds United youngsters beat Brentford in the FA Youth Cup to progress to the the fourth round of the competition.

The Whites won a closely contested game 3-2, with goals from Mallik Wilks and Henry Rollison, before substitute Tyla Bell scored a late winner.

Leeds face Manchester City in the next round, hoping to spring an upset in the under-18s competition.

The players were delighted with the result, commenting on Twitter after the victory.

These included their famously named winger Ronaldo Vieira, who played all 90 minutes of the clash at Griffin Park.

Leeds will host the game against Manchester City at Elland Road, which will take place on January 16.

First team defender Liam Cooper was also quick to encourage and congratulate the youngsters, and praising the value of the competition itself.

Leeds have won the competition twice previously, in 1993 and 1997, with the latter side consisting of players including Paul Robinson and Jonathan Woodgate.
