Strong Leeds side
Useful minutes for a number of first team squad members this afternoon.
Robin Koch, Gaetano Berardi, Jamie Shackleton and Ian Poveda all feature. Leif Davis is also involved after a recent knock.
Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood and Charlie Cresswell are all planned to be heading to an England Under-19s training camp tomorrow at St George’s Park.
1. We’re underway at West Brom... updates to follow.
4. Steady start. Davis already clashing with a Baggies winger - wins a free-kick. United knocking it around and in early control.
5. Berardi gets caught out by a bouncing ball in the wind. Baggies bring it down and shoot low but it’s easily saved by Caprile.
7. Leeds deliver a free-kick. Davis leaps and guides a header on goal but it’s straight at the Baggies stopper.
9. Baggies attack down the left. Ball is swung in and Caprile grabs it in the air. No harm done. Slow and steady start from both teams.
10. Great attack from Leeds. Berardi picks out a lovely ball to Davis. He brings it down in the box and squares it. There’s a shot which is blocked before it’s scrambled clear.
12. So close! Gelhardt wins a free-kick. Greenwood steps up and curls a shot into the sidenetting. Inches wide.
