Then a two minute comedy of errors between Kenneth and Caprice in the second half gifted the toons a way back into the game.
Poor defending from our first-team & U23's this week :(

Just finished the game. Poor defending 2nd half. We played well for most of the game. 3-0 up after 30 and 3-1 after 70 minutes. Seemed like a Caprile error to let them back at 3-2. Kenneh played well last week but looked more uncomfortable at the back today. Huggins is a cracking player but he doesn't seem to be a left back - wing back yes, but too attacking for a back 4. Jenkins also didn't look as dominant in the DMC as he is the #8 role.

Those are the negatives. Positives:

Greenwood (45 minutes) and Summerville (30+ minutes) came back from injury

Gelhardt was great in the first half. Two rash tackles and lucky to only get one yellow. Disappointed he played 90 which means he's probably not on the bench tomorrow

McCarron played the best I've seen him. He hasn't convinced me as a striker. Today he played on the left and was on fire, scoring twice.

McKinstry showed his versatility moving into center midfield

Drameh looked good again. Cresswell did well too.

How good is that goal? Gelhardt looks the real deal for sure. Really excited about this lad. I think he'll have a first team start by February.

Watched first 10 minutes so far. Will have to watch rest later. Any idea why they started late and why they changed the starting line up?

Wonderful individual goal by Costa.

A great response to missing out yesterday.

Enjoyed that. Second half especially. Really good goals from Roberts and Costa.

Casilla is such a poor keeper.

Not sure of the name but the Leeds number 9 looked an exciting prospect from those highlights
