Leeds United fans very excited by Jack Clarke debut

Leeds United handed 17-year-old Jack Clarke a debut yesterday.

Leeds United battled to a 1-1 draw with Brentford yesterday in a game that could have easily gone either way. Leeds struggled to get a hold on the game throughout proceedings and in the end, will be pleased to have come away with a point.

There were, however, some excellent performances from the Leeds camp.

Pontus Jansson was a colossus at the back for Leeds. On top of that, he also grabbed the equaliser as Leeds scored late to earn the point.

But it was the performance of a 17-year-old that had many Leeds fans excited.

Marcelo Bielsa threw Jack Clarke on for his debut in the clash yesterday. The teenager from York, usually a forward, came on at right-wing and put in an impressive display as Leeds chased the game.

He showed plenty of drive and determination as Leeds pushed for the equaliser throughout the final stages of the game.

He should also have reduced Brentford to ten men. Moses Odubajo was extremely fortunate to have stayed on the pitch after two rash challenges on the teenager.

It was, once again, a sign that Bielsa backs the young talent at Leeds and that Thorp Arch continues to produce top talent.

Here is some of the best reaction to his performance…
