Leeds fans react on Twitter to Cody Drameh's under-23 display

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Cody Drameh’s display as the right-back helped the Whites’ under-23s to yet another win on Monday.

A number of players will be incredibly pleased with their contributions. Gaetano Berardi got another 45 minutes under his belt, while Robin Koch and Ian Poveda stepped up their own comebacks.

The 19-year-old was outstanding in the win. Leeds’s defence came under a lot of pressure, particularly during the second-half. And it was often Drameh who relieved that pressure by striding away with the ball and going on a marauding run forward.

When you watch him dribbling and his composure on the ball, it seems difficult to believe that Marcelo Bielsa is not giving serious thought to promoting him at some stage in the near future.
