Stuart McKinstry has joined a host of Leeds United fans in lauding Pascal Struijk on Twitter after the defender scored a goal as the under-23s beat Liverpool 4-0 on Sunday.

The forward scored one from around 45 yards. And he then fizzed another into the corner from not much closer after the break.

Gelhardt has done his chances of making his first-team debut no harm at all. But several others did extremely well in the win.
