Rushian Hepburn-Murphy has been impressing fans with his performances for the under 23s. He scored a fantastic goal as the youth team made it to the final of the Premier League 2 Playoffs.

The 4-3 win over Reading sets up a date with Brighton in the final to see who will be promoted to Division One.

Some fans on Twitter have been advocating for the 19-year-old to play a part of the final regular season game against Millwall on Sunday.

Verdict:

Hepburn-Murphy is due to play for the Under 23s on Friday against Swansea in the Premier League Cup, and it will be interesting if he’s selected for the match.

If he does start, he is unlikely to play at the Den as there is just 48 hours between the two fixtures.

The teenager could play a part in the playoffs though. The manager has played him five times in all competitions this season, but my feeling is he will stick with more senior players for both legs of the semi-final.
