Stuart Mckinstry scored twice for the Leeds United Under-23 side on Friday.
Leeds United fans have praised Stuart Mckinstry on Twitter for his performance for the Under-23 side against their Wolverhampton Wanderers counterparts on Friday.
The Leeds U23 team were in action against their Wolves counterparts in Premier League Cup Group H.
Mckinstry was the star of the show for Carlos Corberan’s side at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground, as the 17-year-old winger scored both the goals in a 2-2 draw.
The former Motherwell youngster scored first in the 20th minute from a rebound after Ryan Edmondson’s effort was denied by Andreas Sondergaard.
The Scottish teenager doubled his tally on 36 minutes. The winger weaved through the Wolves defence, and although his initial effort was saved by Sondergaard, he did not fail from the rebound.
Mckinstry joined Leeds in the summer of 2019, with Motherwell getting an initial compensation fee of £150,000, as reported in The Scottish Sun.
Leeds fans were impressed with the performance of the young winger and have responded positively to his post-match tweet, as shown below.
