Tonight the Brewers welcome Leeds United to the i2i stadium for the annual pre-season clash.
In last year’s meeting at Ings Lane, the Championship outfit scored either side of the break to claim victory. Conor Shaughnessy, then a trialist, scored a stunner in the first half before Sammy Ammisah clipped one into the far corner in the second.
On Saturday, Taddy were eventually worn down by National League North side Spennymoor Town as fatigue somewhat kicked in after the hour mark.
Michael Morton’s side were leading at the break courtesy of a Josh Greening goal but the Moors kicked on and showed their cutting edge in the final part of the friendly to comfortably run out winners.
Leeds United announced just four days ago that the U23’s would be coached by a new face, that face being Carlos Corberan.
The former Villareal assistant manager joined the club following a spell in Cyrpus’ First Division. He only took charge of his first game on Saturday as they saw off his old side Al Ittihad (Saudi Arabia) 2-0 at Thorp Arch.
Team News: Danny Frost, Jake Ellam, Josh Grant and Jake Ellam are all away but Tom Corner returns. Aaron Hardy and Pete Davidson may start. Leeds may hand former Taddy U21 player Romario Vieira a start in midfield.
Enjoy the game!
