LUFC Grayson - The crowd can help us

LUFC Grayson - The crowd can help us

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is looking for the Leeds faithful to play their part this evening and make Elland Road a wall of noise in the FA Cup replay with Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger brings his Arsenal side to Elland Road for the first time since 2004 and nearly all his players will be playing their first game at Leeds.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Grayson said, 'The crowd will be hugely important to us. I'm not sure how many of Arsenal's players will be aware of what the atmosphere at Elland Road can be like but I'm sure they'll realise when they come out a few minutes before kick-off.

'The game's got an edge to it and they'll thrive on that as well. But the atmosphere might be a bit special and a bit different, something they maybe haven't sampled on a Wednesday night. We've got a very vocal crowd and a very passionate crowd and we have to try and use that to our advantage.

'Arsenal have got top players who should be able to handle these situations but if they're not at it then the crowd can help us.'

Leeds have already shown in the first game what their support is like when almost 9,000 fans made the trip to the Emirates.

Theo Walcott could be in for a rough ride tonight from the Leeds fans after admitting after the 1-1 draw at Arsenal that he dived in the hope that he would win Arsenal a penalty.

Almost every ticket is now sold and a crowd of around 38,000 is expected.
