Young Leeds United striker Ryan Edmondson scored again for the under-23s.
Leeds United youngster Ryan Edmondson took only five minutes to break the deadlock in yesterday’s under-23 clash with Crystal Palace.
Edmondson’s goal took his tally to 18 for the season.
His strike helped Leeds secure a 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park.
Edmondson, 17, has established himself as the under-23’s leading striker and has already made his first team debut.
He hasn’t however appeared for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in 2019, and fans feel he cannot be far off.
Unlike last week when there was only 24 hours between under-23 and first team games, this week there is a four day gap.
Leeds play on Friday against Wigan Athletic and Edmondson is putting himself in contention to make the squad.
A starting role is unlikely, but a place on the bench is a possibility.
This is something Leeds fans are keen to see, to reward the young striker for his outstanding form…
Kid deserves a chance on the bench for the last few games. He’s been tremendous for the under 23’s this season— Ashley Griffith (@AshGriffo___) April 15, 2019

Even if we go up we should stick this lad on the bench and give him sporadic game time he’s a talented fella— Matt smith (@msmithrapid) April 15, 2019
If we start ‘falling apart again’, in the next 4, he needs to be given even the slightest chance in the first team, even if it’s just 15 minutes at the end of a game! Clinical striker at this level, needs a chance to prove himself at a higher one now— Martyn (@martyn_ss) April 15, 2019
