Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa took a trip down to Tadcaster Albion to watch the under-23s in action.

The non-league side hosted the Premier League Cup fixture between Leeds and Southampton.

 

The Whites edged to a 3-2 win, thanks to goals from defenders Aapo Halme, Hugo Diaz and striker Ryan Edmondson.

Bielsa looked different from normal as he wrapped up in the cold and donned a hat to watch the young Leeds team.

 

Bielsa managed to see new signing Kiko Casilla in action, along with loanee Izzy Brown.

More than 2,800 fans were in attendance, more than doubling Tadcaster Albion's previous record.

Halme and Diaz both really strengthened their case for first team involvement with their goals, a welcome development with Pontus Jansson suspended for Leeds' next fixture.
