LUFC Grayson happy to be starting at home

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson was delighted to be at home first up when the fixtures for 2010/11 were announced today.

Speaking on the official website, Grayson said, "I think everyone wants to start at home. There will be a good crowd and it`s a nice start for us against a side that will be looking to do well."

The fixture is a repeat of the last time Leeds played their first game in the second tier of English football after a number of years away.

The last time it was Leeds first fixture after dropping from the Premiership. A great strike from Frazer Richardson was enough to ensure Leeds got off to the perfect start in a 1-0 win.

With the championship having quite a strong representation from Yorkshire and Humberside this season, Leeds can look forward to three Yorkshire derbies in September, continuing Grayson said "Three within eleven days is something to look forward to. We`ll be playing teams from this area which can only add spice, not only to the league but also to the area".

For the first time in a number of years, there will be four league games over the Christmas period with all clubs facing four games in eight days.

The fixture people have been quite kind to Leeds and their fans this season with their furthest midweek game being less than two hours away at Derby County.

With the league and Carling cup fixtures now in place and the players returning for pre season training in just over a fortnight the countdown to the 2010/11 season is well and truly on.
