Friendship Put On Ice

Ex-Leeds striker/winger Darren Huckerby returns to Elland Road on Saturday, but will put his friendship with Gary Kelly on ice.

The only other time that Huckerby has returned to Elland Road was with Manchester City in August 2002, when Leeds won 3-0 in the Premiership.

Huckerby: “It's only the second time that I have been back there since I left so it will be nice to go back and I'm sure that I'll bump into one or two familiar faces.

“Obviously, I know Kel very well. I've played against him before and with him - he has been a great servant to the club.

“But that's not my problem. I have got to do everything in my power to win the game. Kel's not daft. We've played against each other before so it will be a good battle.

“It is a big, big game for us. I'll be looking forward to it. We have got to pick up as many points as we can but we're not stupid. We know that it is going to be very difficult. While there is still a chance, we will battle for the points. It is going to be a very difficult game and they are in front of their own fans.

“We are still confident and we have made a few changes. Jason Shackell came in and done brilliant so we are looking forward to the game and are looking to keep building. We have got to try to get a settled side and hopefully go and take the three points.

“We have got to stand up and be counted, there's no doubt about that. It will be fast and furious and a tough game.”
