LUFC Big decisions for Grayson to ponder

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson will have some huge decisions to make for the weekends game at West Ham United.

Max Gradel and Jonny Howson were both suspended for the 4-1 win over Hull City and were replaced by Ramon Nunez and Andy Keogh.

Keogh made his first start for the club after joining on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday. Grayson changed the formation to 4-4-2, which seemed to suit the team and especially Ross McCormack, who had someone alongside him.

Nunez made his first championship start for Leeds, scoring one and setting up one. He also saw and effort come back off the underside of the bar.

Grayson must now decide whether to stick with the players that did so well in the game with Hull or dropped someone to make way for either the club captain, Howson, or last season`s player of the year, Gradel.

It is a nice headache for Grayson to have, with squad players putting forward their case for a run in the side.

Tom Lees has already grasped his chance with two accomplished displays since replacing Paul Connolly at right back.

The 20 year old has enjoyed two successful seasons on loan, winning promotion with Bury last season.

As well as looking composed and assured in defence, Lees was unlucky not to get on the score sheet on Saturday in the Middlesbrough game. He showed good character on Tuesday night in the game with Hull, to bounce back from scoring an own goal, to score his first goal at the right end for Leeds to put them back in front.

Aidy White came into the side on Tuesday night after an injury to Leigh Bromby and also looked assured at left back.

The 19 year old also spent time out on loan last season at Oldham Athletic and is another hoping to grasp his chance this season at Elland Road.

Will Grayson make changes at the weekend?
Will he revert back to 4-5-1 or 4-3-3?
What do you think? Have our say on here and on the Vital Leeds forum.
