The three Leeds United players Steve Evans should hand chances to against Preston North End

Leeds United take on Preston North End at Deepdale on the final day of the season.

With Leeds United having little left to play for this season, we take a look at three players Steve Evans should hand chances to against Preston North End.

Frank Mulhern

Mulhern has been in fine goalscoring form for Leeds under-21 side this season, and he hit the back of the net on his last outing.

The 19-year-old striker scored in Leeds’ development side’s 3-3 draw with Barnsley last week, and he looks capable of making the step up to the first-team in the next few years.

Earlier in the season, Steve Evans actually stated that Mulhern was close to earning a promotion to the first-team, but he is yet to be handed a chance to impress.

With the pressure off against Preston, a late role as a substitute could be reward for the youngster’s fine season at under-21 level.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Leeds’ situation with Peacock-Farrell is delicate at the moment, with the youngster stalling over a new contract offer.

Leeds want to keep the talented stopper, but he appears to be taking his time over committing his future.

Giving him a chance to start at Deepdale would confirm Leeds’ desire to help him develop, and could convince him that staying put is the best option for his career.

Mirco Antenucci

The Italian striker looks set to leave Leeds at the end of the season, with his contract running down.

Antenucci does not seem likely to be offered a new deal by Leeds, but he has done enough to warrant being handed a send off.

The 31-year-old has shown his quality in flashes, and he should be given one last chance to prove his talents in front of the Leeds supporters.
