Izzy Brown played 90 minutes yesterday for the Leeds United U23s against Crewe Alexandra, scoring twice. Is a first team debut coming soon?

Marcelo Bielsa likes to have his first team players that aren’t involved in the match to get into the U23s to build fitness, and it’s been widely speculated, if not reported, that Brown would have to get through at least 90 minutes without problems in a U23 match before getting into the first team.

So does this mean that Brown has a chance to play on Saturday against Stoke City? Perhaps. I’m sure that we’ll find out more during Bielsa’s press conference.

On to the links.
