Leeds fans react on Twitter to Charlie Taylor's performance this weekend

Leeds United drew 1-1 with Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, but what did fans make of Charlie Taylor's performance?

With Leeds United's regular left-back Stephen Warnock unavailable due to injury, manager Neil Redfearn opted for Charlie Taylor for the trip to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

The 21-year-old impressed when a much-changed Leeds side took on Sunderland in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend and he was duly rewarded with his first league start of the campaign a week later.

Taylor has had to be patient at Elland Road, with Warnock the undeniable first-choice left-back at the club - and the captain in the absence of skipper Jason Pearce - but his recent performances have suggested he could be about to challenge the veteran defender for a regular starting spot at the club.

Against Bolton, Taylor impressed, with his side ultimately drawing 1-1 despite taking an early lead when Rudy Austin converted from the penalty spot.

Eidur Gudjohnsen levelled things with a spot-kick of his own and that was how the score remained, with Leeds unable to secure a much-needed win to climb up the table.

But despite their ongoing struggles, there are a few reasons to be cheerful for Leeds fans, with some of their young players excelling and Taylor following suit.
