LEEDS UNITED development squad will travel to Nuneaton Town’s James Parnell Stadium to face Leicester City in the Barclays U21 Premier League Cup on Tuesday, December 9.

The game will kick off at 7pm, with both sides aiming to book their place in the round of 16 with victory.

The round of 16 games have been scheduled for Saturday, December 20.

United advanced to the round of 32 stage with a thumping 6-0 victory at home to Doncaster Rovers at Elland Road on October 6.

That game saw Adryan find the net for United for the first time in a game which saw Noel Hunt hit a hat-trick for the victors, his first goals on home soil since joining Leeds in the summer of 2013.

Brian Montenegro added a brace with midfield man Zac Thompson also on target.

As an elite team, Leicester, whose under-21 side have recorded recent victories over Manchester United and Manchester City, enter the competition at the round of 32 stage.
