How to watch Tranmere Rovers vs Leeds United U21s - live stream details from EFL Trophy clash

By Joshua Hobbs

Leeds United's young-guns will have the opportunity to test themselves against senior opposition tonight as they face League Two's Tranmere Rovers in the EFL Trophy.

The competition features League One and Two sides, as well as sixteen 'Under 21' sides from the Premier League clubs with a category one academy. These sides are allowed to feature two players aged over 21, which Leeds utilised last season by fielding Kiko Casilla in the competition. They likely would have used the fixture as an opportunity to give Adam Forshaw some more minutes had he not picked up a muscle injury.

Leeds United's under-23s have had a good start in their first season in Premier League 2 Division One, winning twice, drawing once and losing once in their opening four games. Tranmere have played eight times this season, winning only twice and losing four times.

These games are always a challenge for the young sides though, as the physicality of senior opponents represents a very different kind of game than they are used to at under 23 level.
