Leeds United Under-23s extended their lead at the top of Professional Development League Group North on Monday thanks to a 2-0 win over their Bolton Wanderers counterparts.

Carlos Corberan’s side are now four points clear at the top of the table with six games remaining after victory over the Trotters, who now have seven defeats from their last nine games in the division.
