This is part of a regular series from our panel of Leeds United Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Elland Road and Thorp Arch.

Leeds United under-23s have been untouchable this season in Division Two of the Premier League 2, even with Carlos Corberan leaving Thorp Arch.

The young Whites are charging towards promotion and they have their summer signings to thank for the majority of that success.

Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood have been phenomenal, with both of them within the top five goalscorers in the entire division.

Greenwood made his senior debut against Crawley in that shocking afternoon in the FA Cup, but Gelhardt has had to wait his chance.

Both of the strikers were on top form yesterday as the under-23s smashed West Brom 5-0 in Birmingham, with the duo scoring four.

Gelhardt scored three of them in his first hat-trick of the season, including two penalties and a smart finish into the bottom corner.

The stocky forward has been on the bench in the Premier League for a number of months now but has yet to be thrown into the action by Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds welcome bottom-side Sheffield United to Elland Road after the international break and that could finally see Gelhardt get his chance.

We asked our esteemed panel of MOT Super Fans whether or not Bielsa will be giving Gelhardt his debut against Sheffield United.

There were a mixture of responses, with one even claiming that if the Whites don’t hand him that chance soon enough, they will risk losing him.

Here’s what they said…
