LUFC - Beckford to miss trip to Crewe

Jermaine Beckford will serve a one match suspension and will miss next weekend`s trip to Crewe for his petulant sending off in Saturday`s victory over Swindon Town.

Beckford who has only just returned to the team after serving a three match ban for elbowing Millwall keeper David Forde in February.

Beckford had given Leeds the lead just two minutes earlier before seeing red for his second booking of the afternoon.

The 29 goal leading scorer was booked soon after half time for a foul on Swindon defender Amankwaah. He then received his second yellow card of the afternoon after punching the ball away after a borderline offside decision went against him and a giving the linesman a verbal volley, He really didn`t give the referee much option but to show him the red card.

When he was suspended in February Leeds lost two of the three games he missed, since returning they have won three and drawn two with Beckford scoring six goals in the process.

Luckily Leeds have brought in centre forward Liam Dickinson on loan from Derby County on Friday and also have young American striker Mike Grella who could fill in next weekend.

Stupid young man...Still we have others who can step up to the mark i'm sure...Just Beckford is a dead cert to score each time he plays....We will just have to wait and see what the outcome will be with him missing...

It will give either Dickinson or Grella chance to stake a claim for a more permanent start, unless he pushes Snodgrass further up the top and brings in another midfielder.

Crewe are going well and we will need to be at our best to get a result...draws are no good now with Posh on a run. Lets hope Beckfords petulence doesnt cost us but at least it may give Grella a chance of a longer run

Stupidity we can do without, Grella doesn't look ready at this level yet and Dickinsons not fit, so what do we do
