Leeds United supporters are reacting on Twitter to Stuart McKinstry's latest Under-23s display.

McKinstry arrived at Leeds from Motherwell earlier this year and made his second-string debut against Crystal Palace last week.

 

But despite the return of a procession of players from international duty ahead of Monday's visit of Watford, the 16-year-old winger retained his place in a side packed with experience.

First-teamers Illan Meslier, Gaetano Berardi, Barry Douglas, Jack Clarke, Eddie Nketiah, Luke Ayling and Tyler Roberts all played some part at Elland Road - where Leeds ran out 6-0 winners courtesy of goals from Pascal Struijk, Nketiah (two), Roberts, Robbie Gotts and Ayling.

While McKinstry was not on the scoresheet, he did win a couple of penalties for his side - which were dispatched by Nketiah and Roberts.

And his performance certainly caught the eye of the following Leeds fans (not to mention his mum, Karen)...
