LUFC Grayson - Players needed a rest

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson was delighted with the display of his much-changed side at Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night and explained that some of his squad needed a rest.

The Whites eased to a 2-0 win even though they made a number of changes including Jermaine Beckford and Robert Snodgrass only starting from the bench.

Speaking on the official website Grayson said "We have nine games in a month, we have had four in ten days and players need a rest".

David Prutton made his first start for Leeds in almost a year and on loan midfielder Hogan Ephraim made his first start for the club.

Ephraim became the twenty ninth player used by Grayson this season and it shows the strength in depth Leeds have when Mike Doyle, Tresor Kandol and Andy Robinson don`t even make the squad.

Oldham wasted a couple of good chances early on before Leeds started to dominate the game, Neil Kilkenny opened the scoring just past the half hour and then Luciano Becchio came off the bench late on to clinch the points.
