The Leeds U23s are also top of their league, and they opened up a even greater lead with a victory over Sheffield United yesterday.
It's all over at Thorp Arch... Leeds claim the points with a 1-0 win but were pushed close by Sheffield United. Even game. Izzy Brown's goal the difference. #lufc https://t.co/5l5HQVbgVn— Joe Urquhart (@JoeUrquhartYEP) January 28, 2019
Izzy Brown scored the only goal in the match, which also saw Barry Douglas play for the U23s in a bid to increase his fitness. The success of the U23s hopefully means that Carlos Corberan has fully embraced how Marcelo Bielsa wants the team to play, and that the players in the Academy are all fully prepared to step in and play in the first team if needed. So far, it appears that it is the case, with Jamie Shackleton, Jack Clarke, Leif Davis, and even Will Huffer being able to step in and play a role in the first team.
