Photo: Ian Harte poses with Nigel Martyn - how Leeds could do with both now

The former Leeds stars have been playing five-a-side for charity.

Ian Harte posed with Nigel Martyn on Thursday night as the Leeds United legends played a bit of five-a-side for charity, with Harte taking to Twitter to post the picture the following day.

And how Leeds could do with the duo in their prime right now.

Marco Silvestri can be a wonderful shot stopper, suffering mainly when collecting crosses and trying to command his penalty area. But Martyn was different class.

Interestingly, Charlie Taylor is one of United's form players - and looks like their best overall talent. He occupies the position Harte would have been in. What a combination Harte at left-back and Taylor at left-wing would have been, though?

Besides, it's more about what Harte and Martyn would offer in terms of spirit and character.

Leeds host Bolton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon and a win would be very welcome indeed. Steve Evans' men have won just one of their last 10 Championship games - this Saturday would be a good day to double that tally.
