9 September 2019

Crystal Palace Under-23s take on Leeds United this afternoon at Selhurst Park and Richard Shaw has fielded two first-team players in his starting XI.

Summer signing Stephen Henderson starts in goal and Jairo Riedewald - celebrating his 23rd birthday today - will feature for the Development side in SE25 for the second time this season.

He joins Sam Woods - who made his first senior start against Colchester United at the end of August - as well Nikola Tavares and Jason Lokilo.

Against a Leeds side unbeaten in three matches, Palace's Under-23s will be looking to regain their season's strong opening form after losing their past two games.

Palace: Henderson, D.Boateng, Trialist, Woods, Tavares, Riedewald, Kirby, Pierrick, Flanagan, McGregor, Lokilo.

Subs: Henry, Mensah, M.Boateng, Steele, Street.

Subs: Miazek, Stanley, Roberts, Kumwenda, Chikukwa.
