WANDERERS' Under-23s claimed a fine 2-0 victory against previously undefeated Leeds United at the University of Bolton Stadium.

David Lee's side arrested a mini-slump of their own with goals from Dennis Politic and Stephen Duke-McKenna, and could have helped themselves to more.

Wanderers hit the woodwork 23 minutes in when Liam Edwards whipped the ball into the box for Jack Earing to head down to Luca Connell, whose shot cracked off the post with Blackman beaten.

They did break the deadlock 10 minutes later, however, as Dennis Politic met a low cross from Earing and he fired the ball into the net out of Blackman's reach.

Buoyed, the home side could have doubled their advantage on 42 minutes as Politic found space inside the area before he was superbly tackled by the sliding Aapo Halme.

On the stroke of half time the superb Politic fizzed a low cross into Pritchard who was left unmarked from close range, but could only fire into the hands of Blackman.

The one-way traffic continued after the restart when Pritchard was played in by Marcus Wood but he fired wide of the target.

Leeds should have equalised on 56 minutes as Jordan Stevens was played in by Ryan Edmondson but he fired wide when the ball looked destined for the net.

Ben Williams in the Bolton goal was then called into action to make a fantastic save on 63 minutes as he tipped a Hugo Diaz shot over the bar.

Just as Leeds looked to be getting themselves back into the game, Wanderers grabbed a decisive second. It came from Duke-McKenna 15 minutes from the end as he met a cross from Pritchard after a good ball from Wood.

Wanderers then hit the woodwork once again on 89 minutes as Pritchard skipped past two Leeds challenges before firing his effort off the inside of the post from just outside the area.

Wanderers: Williams, Muscatt, Earing, Edwards, Zouma, Wood, Politic, Connell, Duke-McKenna (Argent-Barnes 76), Pritchard, Navarro.
