With Leeds not back in Premier League action until a week on Monday night, Whites head coach Marcelo Bielsa gave Raphinha, Hernandez, Tyler Roberts, Pascal Struijk and Ian Poveda starts for the under-23s.

Kiko Casilla also lined up in goal for Mark Jackson's side who recorded a 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Poveda and Roberts in the first-half.

Both played the full match of the Premier League 2 clash with Jackson making just the one substitution in taking off Hernandez for Stuart McKinstry on the hour mark.
