O'Connor, MacDonald, Merrie, Walker, Glatzel and Maynard all start, Clarke and NKP at the centre of what looks like a back four. The youngsters are nowhere in sight, which surely means they will be shipped out on loan soon.

Hopefully Maynard will get on the scoresheet tonight.
ffs why on earth doesn’t he play Merrie on his position in Central midfield ???

The Leeds team is quite a young one. I think we will win 3-0.
This Leeds U23 is a very good team - don’t be too cocky !

Geldardt is the one to watch out for !

Not quite worked out how we’re lining up, but it is a surprisingly strong starting xi.

The Ifollow suggests Merrie at right-back and O’Connor in central midfield??

1-0. Clarke could have took that himself! Great run. Lovely finish from Maynard.

Good goal but the rest of the play fairly scrappy so far.

Well we've now scored 4 in the cups in less than 1 and a half games, compared to 2 in 7 in the league.

Yes, but we are playing a very young Leeds side here, bit of a training exercise really.

Good half from Rovers in terms of finishing, though not so much in it for possession. Might be inclined to take Maynard off fairly soon second half, to keep him safe for the weekend.
