LUFC - Grayson disappointed with Beckford

Simon Grayson was left frustrated and disappointed with Jermaine Beckford after the 29 goal leading goalscorer went from hero to villain in the space of three minutes.

Leeds were struggling to break down a resolute Swindon defence when Robert Snodgrass hung up a ball to the far post and Beckford was there to bury his seventh goal in five games since serving a three match ban for his elbow on the Millwall keeper David Forde in February.

With ninety minutes almost up on the clock Beckford was given offside by the linesman in a marginal decision which Beckford didn`t agree with which led to him punching the ball away and remonstrating with the linesman.

Beckford had already been booked earlier in the half for a tackle on Swindon defender Amankwaah and left referee Keith Stroud no option but to produce a second yellow card followed by a red.

Speaking on ITV.com Grayson said about his star striker 'I thought the first booking was a bit harsh because he got a bit of the ball, but the second was needless and now he has to serve a one-match ban, which is disappointing.'

Beckford will now miss next weekends League One clash at in form Crewe Alexandra with the Whites hoping to continue their pursuit of the top four.

While he is our most valuable asset at the moment we have to realise Becks has not got much up top. Other than the goal he had a shocker yesterday but did what he always does and nicks a goal when we need it. If he starts to use his head (if he has one to use) he will be even better

He needs to calm down a bit. S**t happens we all know it. We've just got to carry on this winning run and get to the championship. We can do it. I have loads of faith! MOT

Thankgod Grayson's brought Dickinson and Grella in although I wouldn't be surprised to see him play Snodgrass alongside Becchio.

Saw this on The Championship today and, although he was probably a bit hot-headed, but he really did think he was in the right didn't he

He didn't need to do it, we had just gone in front going into stoppage time, he should keep concentrating on scoring goals and not having hissy fits!!

I am amazed that some Leeds sites are critisising Larry for critisising Becks. If we had all our players behaving like that it would be a management nightmare...Larry is rught to give him some stick. Decisionwas crap but that had been happening all match so why erupt in the 92nd minute.

Stupid. Beckford is a great striker, but after missing enough games already and demonstrating petulant behaviour on a frequent basis, he should be heavily fined. Or, alternatively, the league should fine the manager for each sending off. That would quickly eradicate stupid disciplinary issues!
