Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to rave about Sam Dalby after his performance for the 10-man Under-23s in their 1-1 draw against Sheffield United this afternoon (Monday).
The striker played a starring role as United’s development team secured a point in the Professional Development League encounter at the home of Stocksbridge Park Steels.
Leeds took an early stranglehold on the match through a Dalby goal after 18 minutes when he steered in a near-post finish after excellent work on the right flank from Bryce Hosannah.
However, United could not go on to continue their excellent run of results at Under-23s level, with Hosannah sent off in the second period after receiving two yellow cards.
Leeds supporters, many of whom take a close interest in the youth team, took to social media to rave about the performance of Dalby, who was signed from Leyton Orient last month.
Many fans pinpointed Dalby as the star of the show and predicted that he could be the next academy product to graduate into the first team.
Here is a selection of the best messages on Twitter:
