LUFC 200 up for Grayson

LUFC 200 up for Grayson

Simon Grayson went through the 200 points barrier as manager of Leeds in the win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

The three points earned in the 4-1 victory over their fellow promotion rivals, took his tally to 202 points since his arrival in December 2008 from 110 league games.

Grayson saw his side pick up a point in his first game in charge on Boxing Day 2008 when a goal in injury time from Robert Snodgrass denied league leaders Leicester City at Elland Road.

Leeds went on to claim 51 points from their 24 remaining games and finish in fourth place after taking over with the side in ninth.

In his first season in charge at Elland Road, they picked up 52 points from 25 games at an average of 2.08 points per game.

Despite a great start with Leeds, the play offs were once again to prove their nemesis when they were knocked out at the semi final stage by Millwall.

In his first full season, Leeds claimed the second automatic spot with 86 points from their 46 games, crucially winning their final game of the season 2-1 against Bristol Rovers, to book a return to the Championship.

The side`s 86 points came at an average of 1.86 points per game.

With many expecting and probably hoping for a season of consolidation in the Championship, Grayson`s side have been the surprise package this season and currently sit in fifth place in the division. They have gained 64 points from 39 games and look well set for at least a play off place at the end of the season.

The points this season have come at an average of 1.64 points per game and if they were to continue at the same rate, they would finish the season with 75 points and safely in the play off places.

Grayson`s win to games record stands at a very good 52% in league games only.

Overall since his arrival at Elland Road, Leeds have now played 110 games, with 58 wins, 28 draws and 24 defeats at an average of 1.83 points per game.

His side have also continued to entertain since his arrival and they are now just eight goals short of 200 league goals since his arrival having netted 192 times at an average of 1.74 goals per game.

Unfortunately, they have also been guilty of letting them in at the other end and have conceded 125 goals at an average 1.13 per game.

There have now been 317 goals involving Leeds both for and against since his arrival, at an average of 2.88 goals per game.
