Confirmed Leeds United Under-21 line-up: Adeyemi and Sloth start, January signings feature

Leeds United Under-21's take on Sheffield Wednesday this evening.

Leeds United Under-21's starting line-up: Grimes, Purver, P McKay, Skelton, Denton, Phillips, Sloth, Adeyemi, Walters, Parkin, J McKay.

Leeds United Under-21 substitutes: Richardson, Vann, Vieira, Lyman, Mulhern.

Leeds United's first team may be on their way down to Cardiff City ahead of Tuesday's night's clash in South Wales, but their youngsters and fringe players are in action tonight.

The Whites face a short trip to Hillsborough this evening as they take on Sheffield Wednesday, with talented youngsters and out-of-favour players looking to make an impact.

As usual, midfielder Casper Sloth - who hasn't played a first-team match for Leeds since the 24th of February 2015 - is named in the Under-21's starting line-up, as the Dane desperately attempts to prove his worth to manager Steve Evans.

Sloth is joined in midfield by Tom Adeyemi, who has been a regular in the first-team this term, but he can't play against his parent club Cardiff on Tuesday, meaning Evans has sent him down to the Under-21's to keep his fitness levels up this evening.

January signings Jack and Paul McKay, who arrived from Doncaster Rovers, are both in the line-up tonight, and the twins are tipped for bright futures having showed promise at Doncaster.

The likes of Tyler Denton, Kalvin Phillips and Lewis Walters are also starting tonight, whilst the brilliantly-named Ronaldo Vieira is on the bench for this evening's clash.
