LUFC Tough decisons for Grayson

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson will have some tough decisions to make ahead of the game against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Lloyd Sam and Ramon Nunez started the game against Bradford City in midweek and impressed with Robert Snodgrass and Max Gradel on international duty.

Gradel should see an automatic return to the side but the Snodgrass decision could be more difficult.

Snodgrass struggled at Southampton last week but his first start and first goal for Scotland in midweek should have the player full of confidence.

Nunez scored twice on his first start against Bradford and will feel unfortunate if he is left on the sidelines.

In defence Tom Lees and Leigh Bromby will be pushing for a start after impressing after replacing Paul Connolly and Andy O`Brien for the final twenty minutes.

The defensive decisions should be a little bit more straightforward with O`Brien looking woefully short of match fitness.

Darren O`Dea was another player on international duty and will be expected to come straight back into the side in place of Ben Parker.

Billy Paynter missed the Bradford game through injury and Grayson once again rates him 50/50 for a return.

Long-term injured Davide Somma and Luciano Becchio remain on the sidelines.

Middlesbrough will not include Faris Haroun with the Belgian international still to complete his move to the Riverside.

Boro boss Tony Mowbray also had a number of players missing in their midweek Carling Cup win over Walsall.

Barry Robson, Tarmo Kink, Rhys Williams and Scott McDonald will all return to the squad.

Middlesbrough may finalise a deal to keep Julio Arca at the Riverside and if they do he will also be amongst the travelling squad.
