LUFC Becchio back in light training

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is not going to rush back Luciano Becchio into the squad after the Argentinian returned to light training.

Becchio has been missing since April with a hamstring injury.

Last seasons top goalscorer returned for pre season training but suffered a reoccurrence of the injury that required surgery.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson only has strikers Billy Paynter and Ross McCormack currently at his disposal, after fellow striker Davide Somma was ruled out for most of the season with a cruciate knee ligament injury that he suffered during pre season.

McCormack and Paynter have scored just three competitive goals between them since signing for the club in the summer of 2010 but Grayson he is not willing to rush back Becchio until he is fully fit. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "I am not going to put a timescale on it but he`s back doing some running with the physio, so we will just wait and see. I don`t want to rush him because he could then be out for longer than expected but he`s making progress and we will continue to monitor him."

Paynter and McCormack drew another blank between them in the opening day 3-1 defeat at Southampton.

Looking at us up front today we can't rely on Paynter and McCormack, they are just not doing it in a Leeds shirt. Don't carry the same threat as Becchio with or without the ball. Becchio hustling their defence actually gives Gradel and Snodgrass and the rest of the midfield more room to play. I've seen waxworks in Mamade Tussauds with more movement that the 'two goal wonders'.

We missed Becchio big time, but Grayson is right in not rushing him back...And we need a striker badly, because Paynter and McCormack are waste, of space...And I think SG knows that too their in the team, to make up the numbers...But like I said we need a striker...Hopefully Becchio wont be out for to long, would be good to have him back for, our next league game...
