U21s Preview: West Brom vs Leeds United

Whites round off their PL2 campaign.


Leeds United Under-21s’ finish their Premier League 2 campaign with a trip to the Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion Under-21s on Monday evening.

Scott Gardner’s side are enjoying a rich vein of form as they head into the clash with the Baggies, picking up two wins and a draw from their last three matches.

The run started with a resounding 3-0 victory over Derby County on home soil, before a Luca Thomas brace on Tyneside saw the Whites beat Newcastle United away from home.

After falling behind to an early Everton goal against the run of play last time out, United deservedly levelled courtesy of Charlie Allen’s well-taken strike before the break and would have gone on to beat the Toffees, if not for an inspired performance by George Pickford in the opposition goal.

Those results have seen the Whites jump up five positions in the PL2 standings, two points above Monday's opposition West Brom.

Albion go into the tie on the back of a difficult run of form, which has seen Richard Beale's side lose their previous four. Last time out, the Baggies fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City, with Kane Taylor and Micah Hamilton getting on the scoresheet either side of half time.

The two sides met at the end of last campaign with West Brom coming out on top in the Midlands, meaning the Whites dropped into the playoffs enroute to promotion back to the top-flight.

A sweet strike against the Toffees:
