LUFC - Macca backs Beckford to regain his form
Gary McAllister has backed his misfiring centre forward Jermaine Beckford to start finding the back of the net again.
The normally prolific goal scorer is going through some what of a drought having not scored in the last five games.
He once again missed a host of good chances in the game at Cheltenham on Saturday.
McAllister speaking on the BBC sport website 'As long as we keep supplying him with ammunition I'm sure it'll come good.
Strikers go through these little patches and he's got to be strong and trust himself.'
Although going through this drought he`s still managed to find the net 13 times already this season and was the clubs top scorer last season with 20 goals.
With fellow striker Lucciano Becchio now beginning to show the form that he produced in Spain last season the pair could still be on target to be the first Leeds strike partnership to score over 40 goals in a season since Lee Chapman and Carl Shutt in 1991/92.
I am sure Beckford`s return to form is just around the corner but it may be worth McAllister bringing in another striker on loan just to get him back on track by giving him competition for his place.
