Team news

Leeds United
Jermaine Beckford sits out the last of his three match ban.
Carl Dickinson has returned to Stoke City after completing his one month loan with the club.
Leeds are short at right back with both Frazer Richardson and Andy Hughes both injured, left back Ben Parker filled in on Tuesday and may continue with Alan Sheehan replacing Dickinson.

Cheltenham Town
The Robins have extended the loan of striker Nicholas Bignall, Leeds fans will remember him after he scored a late winner for Northampton whilst on loan with them from Reading in November.
They have also signed Michail Antonio also from Reading on a loan deal and he will go straight into the squad.


The clubs have only ever met three times before in all competitions.
Last season Cheltenham Town did the double over Leeds, winning 1-0 at Whadden Road and then pulling off a 2-1 victory in the return at Elland Road in March.

When the clubs met earlier this season Leeds won courtesy of an early goal by Luciano Becchio.

We are back at home so it should be three points but moral will be low after the last week!
It would be nothing short of a disgrace if we didnt get the 3 points.....nothing else to say
Dare we say a win
Tiny T
I`m so not looking forward to this one!
Me neither
I am looking at this game & learnt to take 1 game at a time.(Leeds entertain Cheltenham Town on Saturday hoping to get their season back on track after two successive away defeats) How many times have I read that sentence. Tiny T, keep mum on this one (lol)

This is going to be a game leeds must win or that is our season over, Not looking forward to it, The problem is people look at us as a big club yes they are right we are a big club but the problem is we have a league 1 team playing each week there are about 5 players i would keep and let the rest go, and when is Grayson going to bring in players we are back with the same team he took over with, Naylor is been a good signing but the rest are a joke, Trundle has brought nothing different to the side he is slow you can have all the tricks in the book but when your a striker you are judged on your goals and sorry they payed 1 million for that send him back and get someone who is hungry for goals. Sorry to say we look a very average side without Beckford we have turned into a 1 man team thats how bad we have become, Lets hop for our sake we do make it to the play off's beacuse another season in this league we will lose Beckford, Delph, Becchio,Robinson then we will have to re-build a squad which can take another season to gel and then we will be stuck again in this league for another 2-3 seasons WHAT FUN IT IS BEING A LEEDS FAN NOT........
The fact that we will be there more in hope than expectation against a side of the quality of Cheltenham (who did the double over us last year) is a measure of our despair. Why we continue to out ourselves thru this I dont know...its like a disease
What are the odds on Westlake poking home an injury time winner? It's all too much!!!
pete mc,turbo2 and AmsterdamWhite why not come onto the forums and chat...more fun than these front pages ;)
Yorkshirepride1 let me know how ? Tried logging in but says already signed up dont understand, Thick or what answers on a post card!!!
pete mc
All we can do is hope the lads have gotten the kick up the backside they deserve and get back to the form we all know they are capable of! MOT
Dazza would be the on eto ask about logging in problems pete.
Cheers emz57
pete mc

Tiny T
