At least one Leeds defender scored a goal yesterday. Unfortunately, it was on-loan Liam Kitching who scored for Harrogate Town instead of anyone for the first team.

With the playoffs all but out of reach, Paul Heckingbottom should blood the young players and see if any of them can step up next season. Heck, I wouldn’t mind seeing if Ekuban can stay healthy enough to start up top in a 4-4-2, or if Paweł Cibicki is consistent enough to hold down a spot on the wing. And the club has signed about a dozen U23 players, let’s see if any of them can play.

On to the links.
