'Absurd we can't find a place for him' – Some Leeds fans wowed by U23 who was 'unreal' v Bolton

Leeds United Under-23s showed what you do when you go 3-0 up, against Bolton Under-23s on Monday night. 

Three up at half-time, it was a case of deja vu when Bolton got one back in the second half. However, further goals from Eddie Nketiah and Robbie Gotts made it a great night for Carlos Corberan’s youngsters at Leyland.

Our man of the match was Jack Clarke. He rolled back the years to put in a performance that reminded us why we were so excited about him when he burst into the first team.

It was his best display of the season, although admittedly against a very poor Bolton side.

However, that will give Clarke confidence and remind him what he can do when he’s at his marauding best.

Clarke tormented the Bolton players all night, got himself on the scoresheet and set up Nektiah for one of his goals.

It didn’t go unnoticed by Leeds fans, with one saying it’s “absurd” that he’s not getting in the first team.

Marcelo Bielsa wants Clarke to stay but it might be out of his hands, with Tottenham rumoured to be readying a recall in January.

We’d love to see Clarke come off the bench on Saturday against Fulham – perhaps his last chance to prove that he deserves more minutes in White before he goes back.

But, if he does go back without playing any more for us, last night was a great reminder of what he was.

And many Leeds fans lined up to salute him…
