The 17-year-old was just one of two January signings made by the Whites alongside senior goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

Bogusz saw his first action for the Under-23s in the Professional Development League at Aflreton as Carlos Corberan's side took on Nottingham Forest.

United earned a 2-2 draw on a frantic night with the attacking midfielder completing 90 minutes on his bow for the club at the Impact Arena in Alfreton.

Bogusz produced a strong performance as the Pole grew into the game showing off his ability more after the break.

He displayed a good first touch and a willingness to get in behind the Forest defence with a number of darting runs.

Left-back Barry Douglas also featured for Leeds as he stepped up his return from a calf injury with 45 minutes alongside fellow first-team defender Gaetano Berardi who came through an hour.

Goals from from Arvin Appiah and Leo Bonatini saw United trail at the break but a second half fightback saw Corberan's men leave with a point.

Bobby Kamwa struck first after the break before an own goal from Jaydon Richardson ensured a nervy finish for the hosts.

Ryan Edmondson struck the bar as the game ticked into added time but it was as close as the visitors would come to a winner.
