Sam among the scorers in 4-3 reverse...
New manager Neil Warnock got the chance to look at some more of his squad in competitive action on Tuesday when a Leeds United XI went down 4-3 at home to Hull City.
The Tigers only took control of an entertaining clash during the final 15 minutes after United made wholesale changes to the team, replacing a number of experienced players.
Hull had gone 1-0 up in the game, but Nathan Turner equalised with a 20-yard strike after some good hold-up play by Mikael Forssell.
And it was soon 2-1 when Lloyd Sam beat the offside trap to give United the advantage.
The visitors hit back with a leveller of their own, but Billy Paynter restored the advantage when he poked the ball home, following a scramble after a corner, and United were leading 3-2 going into the closing stages.
But the visitors finished the game strongly to net twice more to edge out Neil Redfearn's charges 4-3.
"It looked like we were going to win the game, but credit to them, we made a lot of changes and in the end it proved just a little bit too much for some of the lads," he said.
"It was a good performance overall though. It was a good workout and the pros did well. It was also good for the younger players who came on because Hull had a strong side out and it was a good experience."
United: M Taylor, Smith, Connolly, Bromby, C Taylor, N Turner, Thompson, Nunez, Sam, Paynter, Forssell. Subs: Cairns, L Turner, Poleon, Killock, McCann, Payne, Byram.
