Video: Amari Miller bags stunner as Leeds U23s secure 2-0 win over Derby

Elland Road

 

Leeds United have, on Monday evening, unveiled footage of the club’s U23s making short work of their Derby County counterparts.

Miller’s sumptuous strike the highlight

The latest crop of up-an-coming talent in west Yorkshire marked their return to action a short time ago.

On the back of a dismal spell of form in the Premier League 2, the Whites welcomed the aforementioned Derby to the LNER Community Stadium, eyeing a much-needed three points.

And, when all was said and done, secure a return to winning ways is precisely what Leeds managed.

Amari Miller opened the game’s scoring in spectacular fashion just shy of the half-hour mark, picking the ball up on the right, before cutting inside and bending a pinpoint effort from distance into the far top corner:

And Charlie Allen made sure of the hosts’ victory inside the closing ten minutes of action, reacting superbly to control a deflected strike, before lashing home all in one swift movement:

Leeds, in turn, have climbed up to 12th in the Premier League 2 table, owing to just a 4th three-point haul from 17 outings thus far this season.

Harrison at the treble

The club’s U23s emerging triumphant on Monday evening of course caps a fine 24 hours in west Yorkshire as a whole, after the Peacocks’ senior stars too stepped up to the plate in timely fashion.

Faced with a daunting trip to high-flying West Ham United without the services of the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Patrick Bamford and Pascal Struijk, Marcelo Bielsa’s under-manned outfit shone en route to an eventual 3-2 win.

Jack Harrison proved the star of the show, bagging all three of Leeds’ goals, to guide the club a full nine points clear of the relegation zone.
