Former Forest Green starlet Jordan Stevens starts on the bench for Championship leaders Leeds United against Frank Lampard's Derby County tonight.

Stevens,18, was an unused sub for Marcelo Bielsa's side in their FA Cup defeat at QPR last weekend.

The ex-Forest Green Academy starlet signed for the Championship side last January on initial 18-month deal with  the option to extend this by a further year.

Stevens has been a regular in Leeds' Carlos Corberan’s Under-23 side. 

Under the tutelage of academy boss Scott Bartlett he made the jump up to Rovers' first team in September 2017, clocking up 14 appearances and scoring once against Cheltenham Town in the Checkatrade Trophy.

The Gloucester-born midfielder  made his Forest Green first-team debut in September 2017 and made 14 appearances, scoring once for Mark Cooper's side.
