Marcus Antonsson claimed a hat-trick as a strong Leeds United Under-23 team snatched a last minute victory over Huddersfield Town.
Antonsson rounded off his treble with a header from Alex Mowatt’s 90th-minute cross, sealing a 3-2 win at the John Smith’s Stadium yesterday.
The Swedish striker was given a run-out after more than two months without a league start for Leeds’ first team and the clash at Huddersfield saw winger Dallas make his comeback from a calf strain.
Dallas, who was an unused substitute during yesterday’s 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United at Elland Road, completed 67 minutes in a line-up which featured Marco Silvestri, Matt Grimes and Toumani Diagouraga.
Left-back Tyler Denton was also included after overcoming an ankle injury.
Antonsson opened the scoring on four minutes but Town fought back to take a 2-1 lead before the forward’s late double sealed victory for a Leeds side who were joint bottom of their Under-23 league ahead of kick-off.
United: Silvestri, Whitehouse, J McKay, Diagouraga, Denton, Dallas, Grimes, Mowatt, Stokes, P McKay, Antonsson.
