Leeds United fans are calling for head coach Paul Heckingbottom to give young striker Sam Dalby a first team chance.
The young striker netted twice for the Leeds development squad on Monday night in their 3-2 win at Ipswich Town to continue their good run of form.
The 18-year-old joined Leeds from non-league side Leyton Orient in January on a two-and-a-half year deal and he has shone in the Leeds development squad since his arrival.
Dalby has now scored four times since his arrival and his brace in the 3-2 win at Ipswich made it five wins in a row for Carlos Corberan`s side as they continue to improve in 2018. The development squad have now won eight, drawn two and lost just one of their eleven games in 2018 and fans are calling for the young striker to be promoted to the first team when they return from the international break with a home game against Bolton Wanderers on Good Friday.
Sam Dalby scores twice for the U23’s tonight, get him in the first team. #lufc

Cracking game, that. #lufc end up 3-2 winners. Dalby the obvious pick with some great hold up play and bagged a brace. Shoutout to the four Leeds fans who sang all the way through…

That Sam Dalby looks a player. What’s to lose starting him over Ekuban who we’ve clearly seen isn’t up to much..

Another quality goal, built right up from the back and a fantastic assist, what a finish as well, Sam Dalby looking Brilliant!

Would you like to see Dalby given a chance in the first team or is it too early for the 18-year-old?
