Leeds United lost their latest pre-season clash but all their new additions started the match.
Leeds United lost 2-1 to Peterborough United in their latest pre-season match this weekend, with Alex Mowatt’s early goal ultimately cancelled out by a Shaq Coulthirst brace.
Leeds boss Garry Monk gave all six of his summer signings a run-out and there were contrasting fortunes for the new additions.
Kemar Roofe looked a class act throughout and will surely become a fan favourite at Elland Road in no time, while fellow forward Marcus Antonsson continued to impress with his work rate despite missing two good opportunities to find the net.
Further back, loan signing Matt Grimes did his best to make an impact in the centre of the park but his performance attracted a mixed response from fans who were at the game.
The 21-year-old is set to play a vital role for Leeds next season following Lewis Cook’s move to Bournemouth and at his best he has what it takes to ease the blow of that controversial departure.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Leeds fans thought of Grimes’ latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
First half was decent today I have to say really impressed with Roofe and Grimes. #Lufc— Everything Leeds (@EverythingLU) July 23, 2016
Sacko too lightweight - missing Dallas. Grimes and Murphy not strong enough in the tackle to play as a pair. @LUFC— Matthew Pickford (@TheRealPickers) July 23, 2016
Were going to need better than Murphy and Grimes in the middle #LUFC— R Hargrave Esq. (@Garforthrich) July 23, 2016
The midfield 3 are chasing shadows here. Yet to be convinced by Grimes. #LUFC— James (@JamesLUFC) July 23, 2016
Grimes isn't strong enough and Bartley is like a cart horse. Green looks 90 #lufc— Archie (@ArchieAndrews93) July 23, 2016
