LUFC 2010/11 Season Review - April

LUFC 2010/11 Season Review - April

We are almost at the end of our review of the 2010/11 season when Leeds hopes of a play off place are all but ended after a poor run of results.

The month opens with a crunch six pointer at home to Nottingham Forest.

The game changes in the first half when the visitors are reduced to ten men after Chris Cohen received his marching orders.

Leeds take full advantage with Max Gradel scoring twice and John Howson and Luciano Becchio scoring in a 4-1 win.

John Howson is the latest Leeds players to claim the ESPN Fans Championship player of the month for March.

Millwall once again enjoy their cup final with a 3-2 win at the New Den.

Luciano Becchio and Andy O`Brien are on target but it`s once again a below par performance.

Leeds are quickly back in action at Derby and after dominating and finally taking the lead through Max Gradel they somehow manage to throw away more points in a 2-1 defeat.

Watford leave Elland Road with a point in a 2-2 draw. Leeds take the lead with less than twenty minutes remaining through Luciano Becchio but once again, calamity defending sees them trail 2-1 with minutes remaining. Troy Deeney puts through his own goal to salvage a point for Leeds.

The result is made worse with a hamstring injury to leading goalscorer Luciano Becchio that rules him out for the remainder of the season.

Ramon Nunez extends his loan at Scunthorpe United until the end of the season after impressing during his initial month at Glanford Park.

Leeds give a twelve-month contract to youngster Zac Thompson after impressing since arriving from Everton.

Leeds are held to another draw, this time at home by Reading.
The whites fail to breakthrough the Reading defence with their keeper in inspired form as the game finishes 0-0.

The result sees Leeds drop out of the play off places for the first time since November.

Leeds again throw away points in a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

The Whites have now picked up just three points from a possible fifteen and drop further behind Nottingham Forest in the race for sixth place.

Barry Bannan returns to Aston Villa after failing to impress during his month`s loan at Leeds.

Leeds win for the first time in six games thanks to a first goal for the club from Ross McCormack in a 1-0 home win over Burnley.

The month finishes with just one game remaining at champions Queens Park Rangers.

Leeds have to hope that Nottingham Forest lose their last game of the season at Crystal Palace and turn round a six goal deficit to claim the final play off place.

Next week we will look back at the final game of the season and the fallout as players are released from the club.

There is also the ongoing saga of whether Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson will be staying at Elland Road as they come to the end of their contracts.
