Leeds United’s hopes of earning promotion to the Premier League seem to be dwindling by the day due to unsavoury results in recent weeks.
The Yorkshire outfit are now 12 points adrift of the playoff places having picked up just one win in their last eight Championship fixtures since Paul Heckingbottom took over.
Along with the negative results and public outbursts by club owner Andrea Radrizzani, it has been a difficult time for the Whites.
For the Under-23s, though, it has been a different story as they are on a positive run having picked three wins in a row.
Their latest came on Monday night when they earned a 3-2 victory over Ipswich Town at Portman Road.
Sam Dalby scored twice, while Alex Machuca also got on the scoresheet in what was a very positive game for the development squad.
Bryce Hosannah played a role in the match, and he expressed his joy on Twitter after the full-time whistle blew.
Big 3-2 win tonight away to Ipswich, 6 unbeaten & 3 wins on the bounce now as well👊🏽boys on🔥 #LUFC

Some fans felt that the first team could learn a lot from the youngsters.
Why not let these boys play in the first team for the rest of the season nothing to lose
