York City vs Leeds United

Wednesday 10th July 2019, 7:00pm | Bootham Crescent


Leeds United travel the short distance to Bootham Crescent this evening to play their first competitive game since the play-off heartbreak at the hands of Derby County 56 days ago! Marcelo Bielsa has named an experimental team combing youth and experience against the Minstermen. There has been much speculation about certainplayers over the past few days and some nerves may be put at rest by the sight of Kemar Roofe starting up front. There is no sign of Kalvin Phillips but the club say he is expected to play at Guiseley tomorrow along with Klich, Alioski & Costa. Luke Ayling is doubtful for both games after picking up a knock.

Leeds will follow tonight’s friendly with a second warm-up game at another National League North side in Guiseley tomorrow night before leaving for the club’s pre-season tour of Australia this weekend. Leeds United’s first two pre-season fixtures against York City (Wednesday 10th July 7:00pm) and Guiseley (Thursday 11th July 7:45pm) will be shown live and free on LUTV. The line-ups for this evenings game are;


Leeds United:
Casilla, Dallas, Berardi, Cooper, Douglas, Forshaw, Hernandez, McCalmont, Harrison, Roofe, Bamford
Subs: Miazek, Gotts, Edmondson, Hosannah, Jenkins, Oduor, Struijk, Kun, McCarron


York City:
Whitley, King, McNulty, Allen, Griffiths, Beresford, Green, McLaughlin, Ferguson, Burrow, Maguire
Subs: Moke, Tait, Bond, Kempster, Langstaff, Dyer, Newton, Wright, Jameson, Jebson-King, Watson, Harrison, Ventura

Also on Kiko.

Anyone see when Alfie McCalmont controlled a difficult high ball, Kiko stood and quite clearly applauded him.

He is a good egg Kiko.

I see on social media that a section of our 'fans' were booing Bamford last night. Personally despise hearing this and wonder what the cretins involved think it's going to achieve. Also, and I don't know how true this is, apparently Kiko went to the fans beforehand to apologise for the play-off 2nd leg. Big of him, if true, I just hope Cooper did likewise as he was more culpable than Casillas was.
Cant have done.

If Cooper was apologising for all his mistakes those fans would still be their now :oops:
