Young Magpies to face Leeds in Premier League Cup semi-finals
Written by Luke Vinton
Newcastle United Under-23s have been handed an away draw against Leeds United in the semi-finals of the Premier League Cup.
Ben Dawson's side sealed their spot in the last four courtesy of a 3-2 extra-time victory against Derby County, with United's Owen Bailey, Matty Longstaff and Mo Sangare finding the target in their quarter-final clash at Whitley Park.
United's reward for their late heroics is an away trip to the Whites, who the young Magpies faced in the competition's group stages earlier this term - with Newcastle's youngsters earning a 2-0 home victory whilst suffering a 3-1 defeat at Guiseley's Nethermoor Park.
The cup clash is set to be played between Tuesday, 30th April and Friday, 10th May as the young Magpies aim to reach the final of the tournament.
Further details will be confirmed in due course.
