Joe Gelhardt could be involved in Leeds United clash v Fulham
Joe Gelhardt is likely to be involved for Leeds United when they play against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday, according to Graham Smyth.
Writing via his personal Twitter account on Sunday, the Yorkshire Evening Post journalist reported that Gelhardt, 19, will “surely, surely be reporting to Craven Cottage” for the upcoming Carabao Cup clash.
Gelhardt scored twice for Leeds’ Under-23s on Sunday as they won 4-0 away at Liverpool. Both of the young forward’s goals were absolute screamers.
We can’t rave enough about Gelhardt’s two goals against Liverpool’s Under-23s in Premier League 2 this weekend.
The young striker’s first goal saw him beat the Liverpool goalkeeper from almost the halfway line.
For his second goal, the ex-Wigan striker cut inside from the right to get the ball on his left foot and again smashed it home from distance.
Which one of those goals is your favourite? We cannot decide they are both so good.
The YEP’s Smyth also dubbed the second goal as “ridiculous” while Gelhardt also assisted one of the other goals Mark Jackson’s side scored.
Pascal Struijk and Adam Forshaw were also involved in the action with the former scoring against them despite being sent off against their first team last weekend.
All in all, it was a great day for Leeds’ Under-23s and a great day for the club as a whole as we approach the Carabao Cup clash with Fulham.
Marcelo Bielsa has struggled to take Leeds far in any of the domestic cup competitions but there’s now a good chance for him to right some wrongs and take us on a run.
