Leeds United returned from the latest international break to defeat Bristol City 2-0 at Elland Road on Saturday, bouncing back from a defeat against West Brom two weeks ago.
The Peacocks took until the second half to find the breakthrough against the Robins, with Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez on the scoresheet after the visitors were reduced to ten men.
Injury issues have plagued Marcelo Bielsa’s side this season and, with Pontus Jansson and Bailey Peacock-Farrell unavailable for Saturday’s clash, Leeds handed opportunities to two youngsters in the form of Will Huffer and Aapo Halme.
The pair, both 20, gave a good account of themselves in the win and could feature against Reading this evening if Bielsa decides not to risk Jansson and Peacock-Farrell – and many fans on social media believe the youngsters deserve another opportunity.
Reacting to the latest injury update ahead of tonight’s game, plenty of fans stated they were pleased with the youngster’s performances and we have gathered some of their reactions below.
If Jansson isn't 100% fit, don't risk him, would rather have him back for Sheffield Utd game

I thought the exact same. Looping balls into the area and crosses are what I dread with BPF in goal, Huffer seemed to command his area much better, albeit with not much to actually test him.

Huffer had good game but halme outstanding I thought not afraid to have ball at feet and won everything in air showed to be a very good talent

Huffer did well and Halme showed he has what it takes Both did themselves proud

Both look to have an excellent future
But I'd much rather have Jansson or berardi there atm.
Huffer coming out to catch the ball from corners.
Aint seen that properly since Rob Green.
Distribution was good bar the early nerves hiccups, fair enough tho with the circumstances.

Instead of risking PJ or BPF why not keep H and H, stick in Saiz, go on the attack and try to blow them away instead?

He play Huffer even if BPF is fully fit. He didn’t play on Saturday/ we kept a clean sheet. Coincidence?
