U23 Preview: Leeds United vs Fulham

Whites face Fulham in final match of 2020.

Mark Jackson’s U-23s side play their final match of 2020 this afternoon, as they take on Fulham U-23s at Thorp Arch (12:00). 

Things are looking good for the Whites currently, as they sit top of the Premier League 2 table with  19 points from their opening 10 matches. Jackson’s side also have a game in hand over nearest challengers Middlesbrough, who are currently two points behind in second place. 

The form at Thorp Arch has been strong so far, with Leeds currently unbeaten. The record stands at five wins and one draw from six matches, a key reason behind why the team are top of the division. 

Fulham are today’s visitors. They are managed jointly by the duo of Colin Omogbehin and Mark Pembridge. The pairing have been at Fulham for a number of years in coaching roles and can also look back at their time in a playing capacity with the Cottagers. 

They bring their team to Leeds this afternoon on the back of three straight victories, which has built confidence and seen them rise to fifth in the league. 

Their form away from home has been indifferent, managing three victories from their seven matches. However, no team in the division has more than three away wins so far this campaign, with Middlesbrough and Aston Villa also on the same number. 

An exciting final match of the year awaits.
