LUFC Paynter on target in Leeds win
Leeds United have beaten Scottish Premier League side Celtic 2-0 in a behind closed doors friendly at Thorp Arch.
The whites included five players with first team experience at Leeds and experienced international goalkeeper Maik Taylor.
Billy Paynter made his first start in a Leeds shirt since returning from his loan spell at Brighton.
Trialist Matty Pattison made his second start for Leeds in a behind closed doors friendly, having played in the game against Newcastle last week.
The duo were both on target for Leeds inside the final ten minutes of the game. The goal for Pattison makes it two in two games.
There was also more time on the pitch for Ben Parker who completed 60 minutes as he return to full fitness following his latest injury.
Celtic put out a largely youthful looking side, with only three players having had limited first team experience.
The bhoys did include Nigerian under 23 international Rabiu Ibrahim who was granted a work permit last week after signing for the club during the January transfer window.
