Leeds United U23s v Derby County U23s LIVE


Leeds United's U23 side are without a league win for 11 matches in Premier League 2 Division 1 this season, but tonight are up against a side who are also struggling for points.

Derby County have already been defeated by the young Whites this season, but their victory away from home now seems a distant memory.

Injuries to senior players has required several U23s to step up to the first-team squad, meaning the youngsters have faced considerable upheaval.

Many U18 players have filled in for the absentees, while last season's ploy of dropping first-teamers into U23 squads to gain match fitness has hardly been utilised due to the pressing need for them in the senior team immediately following their comebacks.

This evening 13th placed Leeds take on 12th place Derby, with both sides level on 13 points.
