Leeds United youngster Robbie Gotts put in a lively performance for the under-23s which showed he could provide an attacking solution for the first team.

Gotts has recently been included in first team squads, including the FA Cup clash, but is yet to make his debut.

 

The teenager has been called up as cover for the right-back position, but his calling may be on the wing.

Last night in the under-23 match away at Hull City, Gotts was picked out on the right flank, with Bryce Hosannah selected at right-back.

Gotts made an immediate impression, scoring in the first half and providing an assist in the second.

He linked up impressively with Hosannah down the right, and with Kun Temenuzhkov, who scored an impressive brace.

While Temenuzhkov is in a queue of strikers hoping to get first team minutes, the competition for Gotts on the wing is thin.

 

Indifferent performances from Jack Harrison and Ezgjan Alioski have allowed Jack Clarke to make his breakthrough.

Clarke looks a fantastic talent, and Gotts could be in the same bracket.

His performance came in front of a watching Marcelo Bielsa, who made the trip down to Hull, and he can't have failed to be impressed by what he saw from the 19-year-old.
