Leeds United’s Under-23 side played out a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace’s Under-23s on Monday afternoon and there was another goal for Ryan Edmondson.
Edmondson has now found the back of the net on 18 occasions this season, which has led to a number of Leeds fans calling for him to be involved in the first team.
The 17-year-old has played twice in the Championship this season, but his last involvement was against Birmingham City back in September.
It does seem unlikely that first-team boss Marcelo Bielsa will call for the teenager at this stage of the campaign when considering what is at stake.
However, some of the Leeds supporters feel that the forward should be given the opportunity to prove himself before the end of the campaign.
It really is a huge period of the season for the Whites, who have won their last two in the Championship against Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday.

Next up for Bielsa’s team is a home game against Wigan Athletic on Friday, where they will be looking to consolidate their spot in the top two.
A selection of the Twitter reaction in relation to Edmondson’s latest performance can be seen below:
Kid deserves a chance on the bench for the last few games. He’s been tremendous for the under 23’s this season

Even if we go up we should stick this lad on the bench and give him sporadic game time he’s a talented fella

If we start ‘falling apart again’, in the next 4, he needs to be given even the slightest chance in the first team, even if it’s just 15 minutes at the end of a game! Clinical striker at this level, needs a chance to prove himself at a higher one now
