'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Paynter back on the sidelines

Leeds United striker Billy Paynter is once again on the sidelines after suffering a reoccurrence of the shin injury that has kept him sidelined since pre season.

Paynter looked to be close to a first team debut after coming through a behind closed doors friendly against Middlesbrough last week when completing the 90 minutes.

Leeds are yet unsure as to the severity of his injury, speaking on the official website, Leeds boss Simon Grayson said, 'He's had a slight reaction to his injury and he's gone away to get some tests done.

'We'll have a bit more news after the weekend but it's disappointing because he was building up his fitness and got a game in last week. We don't know the severity but we'll have to see where we are now.'

The former Swindon striker scored 29 goals last season for the robins and looked to be settling in nicely at Elland Road in the summer when he scored his first goal in the pre season win in Slovakia against MFK Kosice. Unfortunately, it was in the same game that he suffered his shin injury, which has kept him on the sidelines since.

I hope he's not going to turn out to be one of those signings thats always injured. Was really looking forward to seeing him in a Leeds shirt after he looked very impressive against us last season.

It's never a bright idea to buy an injured/injury-prone player. Grayson has done the same with Faye - the mind boggles!
Reiver
Hopefully he's not always on the treatment! Table haven't even seen him play yet he's a bit injury prone ffs
iwa
Kisnorbo will be back before him at this rate!

Another duffer of a striker, and we've had plenty of them
Tiny T
He played over 120 games in 3 seasons for Swindon, Reiver - hardly the record of an "injury-prone" player!
