Since leaving Leeds United, Charlie Taylor has had to make do with a bit-part role at Burnley, featuring just once for his new club to date, in the EFL Cup clash with Blackburn Rovers.

Sean Dyche's men are back in that competition later this week, and Taylor is again expected to start, this time against his former teammates, so what chance Leeds throwing a spanner in the works by pitting the left-back against one of the most powerful if unproved attackers in the second tier?

Jay-Roy Grot is built like a machine but he also has pace to burn, and the 19-year-old will be chomping at the bit to make his first start for Leeds on Tuesday.

The summer signing impressed when he came off the bench for his debut against Nottingham Forest earlier this month, bursting forward and causing plenty of problems for the opposing defence.

The Leeds youngster got other brief chances against Burton Albion and Millwall, and while his future could be as a centre forward, he is also more than capable of playing wide right.

It is there Leeds should play Grot on Tuesday, pitting him directly against Taylor. After all, the defender is lacking regular football and the new Whites attacker could ensure it is a tough night for the 24-year-old.
