Leeds United’s under-21s faced West Ham United’s under-21s at Elland Road on Friday evening as the Whites looked to maintain their perfect start.

The Whites youngsters are back in the country’s top tier of Academy football following last season’s promotion as play-offs winners and Michael Skubala’s side started the new campaign with impressive away wins at Brighton and Manchester United’s under-21s.

A first home clash of the new Premier League Two Division One season then presented itself against West Ham in a 7pm kick-off under the Elland Road lights. But the evening proved a very hard for Skubala’s young side as a senior international excelled for the Irons. Here is a recap of the night’s events.
