Cresswell Return A Major Boost

Looking to the positives out of Friday's draw with Preston, Leeds' options in attack have increased with the return of Richard Cresswell.

The former Lilywhites favourite joined Leeds in a 1.15million move last August, but had been sidelined since February with knee ligament damage.

But he played 21 minutes on Friday and should feature again off the bench on Monday night.

Kilgallon: 'When Cressy comes on, you see what he does.

'He winds the defenders up and there's nothing worse to play against than a striker who works as hard as he does.

'We've got to go to their place now and keep it tight at the back and hopefully nick a goal.'

I think we should play Stone from start as well and get rid off Bakke. Midfiled of derry stone and lewis with miller on the left an right. 4-3-3 didn't work in the first leg the sussed our tatic of gettin it out wide to easily we need to vary it and give people the liecence to break from midfield. Can't do that we 4-3-3.

great to have Cessy back, he did have an impact and is big enpugh in size & experirnce to deal with the Preston cart horse thugs at the back. Davies got a way with a penalty after mugging the very honourable Killa, then would should have been off in the 2nd have with more dirty play that did see him booked. Bakke is a class player of international, euro & premiership experience, if he's fit he should play. Bakke contributed well, his hieght is a threat in the box and again can rough it up with the bets of em... COME ON SUPER LEEDS!
