LUFC Busy time ahead for Leeds

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson believes the international break has come at a good time for him to take stock of the season and give his players a breather ahead of a busy schedule.

After a slow start to the season, Leeds finally seem to be finding their groove, taking ten points from a possible twelve in their last four games.

Leeds find themselves in eleventh place with a game in hand on most clubs above them and a win in that game could see them climb into the play off places.

Grayson is now looking to give his non-international players a breather as they prepare for six games in twenty-three days.

Speaking on the official website, Grayson said, "We have a big run of fixtures in the next month or so with Saturday`s, Tuesday`s Wednesday`s so it won`t do us any harm to give us a breather and take stock of the situation."

Leeds have five players still away on international duty. Darren O`Dea, Andy Keogh and Aidy White are away with Republic of Ireland whilst Mika Vayrnen and Mikael Forssell are away with Finland.

Robert Snodgrass is back with Leeds after pulling out of the Scotland squad with an ankle injury.

Simon Grayson is preparing next for a Yorkshire derby at Doncaster Rovers on Friday night. The two clubs met at the Keepmoat in August in the Carling Cup. A game Leeds won 2-1. Doncaster look rejuvenated in recent weeks after a change in manager, with Dean Saunders taking over.

They have managed seven points from their last nine to pull themselves off the bottom of the championship and outside the bottom three.

Amazingly, in Leeds six games in twenty-three days, not one will kick off at 3pm on a Saturday with only the Peterborough game on a Saturday and that is a lunchtime kick off.

Leeds then welcome Coventry City to Elland Road on the following Tuesday night before making a trip to Peterborough for a lunchtime kick off.

They then face another midweek game. This time their game in hand at Birmingham City, which was postponed last month due to the blues involvement in the Europa League.

The month is finished off with Cardiff City visiting Elland Road for a Sunday lunchtime game.

Leeds are back in action on the Wednesday. This time it is another team relegated from the Premier League Blackpool, who come to Elland Road.

The run of games is finished off with a trip to Leicester City for Leeds second Sunday game in a row.
