McAllister Looks for Leeds Revival
After the dismal 0-0 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion, Leeds boss Gary McAllister is looking forward to tonight’s game with Doncaster Rovers.
If that wasn’t incentive enough for a Leeds United squad edging closer to being out of the playoff place race, the very fact that Doncaster called off the match just 3 hours before kick-off gives an extra reason to get one over on the team that dished out Dennis Wise’s final home defeat during his time as manager.
Speaking to Leedsunited.com, McAllister told of his DVD collection:
“I've watched the game against them from earlier in the season on DVD,' said the manager.
“They came here and did a job on us, but we are looking forward to this one. Hopefully it's payback. I've seen them play a few times, and they try and get it down and pass.
“It's a Yorkshire derby, but they had a good result against Forest last week. They deserved to win that one and this should be a good battle.”
Rui Marques and David Prutton are both injury doubts for the match as is Bradley Johnson and his knackered knee. Andy Hughes returns from suspension and injuries to Rui and Prutts may see a return to the first team line-up for Paul Huntington and Jonathan Douglas respectively.
Kick-Off at the Keepmoat is 7.45pm and as per usual, the Vital Leeds forums will be open. Seemingly with some guests from Vital Millwall / Millwall Online :-).
