Ben White 7/10. A second run out and another strong showing from the defender. A number of mazy run and crossfield balls got the pulse racing. Looks every bit of the ball-playing centre-back Leeds promised.

Ryan Edmondson made his presence felt as he bagged a hat-trick on Wednesday night. The 18-year-old showed a real poacher instinct as he was tasked with leading the line.

Peacock-Farrell, Roberts, Ayling, McCalmont and Shackleton were among those absent in Tadcaster. Knocks and niggles were the reasons given but as pre-season rumbles on minutes will become harder to come by.
