LUFC - Grella scores two

Leeds reserves beat Grimsby Town 4-0 on Wednesday with young American striker Mike Grella again impressing.

Grella continued his impressive form in the reserves scoring two more goals to make it five in two games after scoring a hat trick against Barnsley on his debut.

The 22 year old opened the scoring after five minutes when firing in from 20 yards.

Leeds were 2-0 up in the opening fifteen minutes when Jonny Webb got on the end of a Peter Sweeney (remember him?) cross.

The away side made it 3-0 with just under twenty minutes remaining after good work from David Prutton, his back heel fed Nathan Cartman who made no mistake.

Grella completed the scoring with ten minutes left on the clock to complete Leeds fifth reserve team win in a row.

With Jermaine Beckford also returning for the weekend game will Simon Grayson be tempted to play Grella and Beckford has an attacking partnership?

Team - Lucas, Darville, Webb, Michalik, Sheehan, Hatfield, Prutton, Falkingham, Sweeney, Grella, Cartman

Substitutes - Lees, Milne, R. Jones, S. Jones, Whitwell

I would like to see him given a start, 10 and 15 minutes at the end of the game are no good.

I agree with you there dazza, how much proof do you need , he is a natural goal scorer and hungry to make an impression here at leeds' I would drop trundle lets be honest what has he done since he came here ?????, Play him alongside Beckford that would only improve his game what we got to lose they are not scoring at the topend off the field so give him his chance and start him.....

It has to be Grella and Beckford up front this weekend. Can you imagine if Grella scored? His confidence would be sky high and could set us on a great run. Plus, he's a relatively unknown quantity to opposing managers and could disappear under the radar somewhat. He might also take some of the pressure off Beckford....

He can`t really do much more to stake a claim for the first team...how many other clubs in this league would sit him on the bench after the way he`s performing?

He's definetely earned at least 45 minutes this Saturday!...I would start questioning Graysons managerial skills if he didnt start giving Grella a good chance... 5 wins in a row for the reserves...fair play to them...
