Leeds United’s Under-23s team picked up an important three points on Friday afternoon, as they ran out narrow 3-2 winners over Derby County.
The Rams took the lead in this one, as Osazee Aghatise opened the scoring, only for Crysencio Summerville to level the scores with an impressive solo goal.
Connor Dixon then put Derby back in front shortly after Summerville’s equaliser, before Sam Greenwood drew the scores level once again before half-time.
Joe Gelhardt then netted the winner for Leeds, as they held on to pick up the win over the Rams. Greenwood’s goal caught the eye in the victory, and the striker will be hoping he can continue to go from strength to strength moving forwards.
Plenty of Leeds United’s supporters were quick to take to social media to issue their thoughts on Greenwood’s contribution in the win over Derby, with many calling for him to be involved in the senior squad in the near future.
What did Leeds fans make of Sam Greenwood?
“And again. Get him in the first team.”
“The best Greenwood in the Prem.”
“Can’t wait to see Greenwood’s cocky swagger winding up opposition fanbases very soon in the Prem.”
“Excited to see Greenwood in the first team.”
“He needs the opportunity ASAP.”
“Brilliant Sam Greenwood!”
Greenwood will be pushing for a first-team spot in the future, although it remains to be seen as to whether he’ll be able to dislodge the likes of Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts from their positions anytime soon.
